(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - Reports of damage have come in from Monday afternoon's storms in Indiana.

In Bloomington, several trees were uprooted and knocked into homes and businesses.

One large tree forced residents out of a housing unit after hitting a second-story bedroom and bathroom.

Bloomington Fire Chief Roger Kerr says they will have to wait until later on Tuesday before some of the large trees are removed.

A tornado reportedly touched down in Jackson County near Cortland but damage has yet to be confirmed.

The storms reportedly destroyed a poultry barn that belonged to rose acre farms but the barn only suffered minimal damage to the roof.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Ryan says crews will be going to Jackson County and other counties to assess damage reports on Tuesday.

In Franklin, high winds caused a semi tractor-trailer to fall on its side on southbound I-65 near State Road 44.

The interstate was closed for several hours while crews worked to clear the road.

As of this morning, over 13000 Duke energy customers remained without power with 4500 of those coming from Monroe County and around 250 from Lawrence County.
