Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog: Severe storms moved through Shelby Co. Thursday, July 29, 2021

Strong to severe storms moved through southeast central Indiana last night with possible tornado damage.

INDIANAPOLIS — A severe thunderstorm caused some damage in Shelby County Thursday night.  

The storms were very intense when they moved through around 8 p.m.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis will be visiting Shelby County today to see if the storm damage was due to a tornado. If it was, indeed, a tornado, the NWS will track the tornado path and width and also rate it on the EF scale.

Radar from last night did look like there was rotation. Here is a look at the base velocity and storm relative velocity. Look for the pixels of red and green.  That is the area where there was possibly a tornado.
