(ANGOLA) - Strong thunderstorms early Tuesday morning left their mark on the area thanks in part to wind gusts that measured 66 miles an hour just after 1:00am.

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for all or parts of eight counties as the storm was moving east at 65 miles an hour. It had a history of widespread wind damage in South Bend.

Several trees up to 16 inches in diameter were reported down on Martha Street in Angola. At least 20 trees were uprooted west of Angola. Some trees were also reported down on homes. At least four homes had significant damage in Angola according to National Weather Service spotters.

Calvary Lane between Williams and North Wayne Street in Angola was closed because of a downed tree and power lines.

Steuben County Sheriff Tim Troyer is asking drivers to use caution and be aware of tree limbs and debris in the road as you head out Tuesday morning.

The storm knocked out power to over 200 NIPSCO customers in Angola. Another 161 NIPSCO customers are out in Pleasant Lake. Outages are also reported in Hudson, LaGrange, Howe, Wolcottville and Waterloo. A total of 768 NIPSCO customers were out in LaGrange.

Power lines were also knocked down. There were also trees and debris on U.S. 120 between 300 West and 450 West.

A thunderstorm wind gust of 60 miles an hour was reported at Topeka in LaGrange County. The LaGrange County Sheriffs Department says they have had several reports of power lines, trees, and signs down in the road. They remind everybody that if you come across downed power lines, do not approach them. If the lines are charged, this can be deadly. Contact the Sheriff's Department at (260) 463-7491.
