Indian Boundary blocked by tree on vehicle:
A fallen tree blocked east Indian
Boundary Rd. last night following the thunderstorm that tore through the
area. This lucky driver, westbound on Indian Boundary when the tree came
down, was unhurt. Porter County Sheriff Police were on the scene.

Down to the ground:
At 8 a.m. today 15th Street at
Lincoln Ave. was still closed after this tree toppled into the roadway
during Monday evening’s wind storm. The roots caused the sidewalk to buckle
and the sod was peeled up as neatly as a piece of carpet.

Two massive trees were downed by
wind on South Second St. in Chesterton, one of them totally uprooted by a
wind shear during Monday’s severe thunderstorm.
