HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) Ė Large tornadoes roared across south-central Indiana Friday afternoon, causing widespread damage and injuries, possible fatalities, and leveling Marysville, IN and much of Henryville, IN in northern Clark County.

Widespread damage was also reported in the northern Clark County communities of Henryville, Memphis and Borden and the Washington County community of Pekin, IN.

The Jefferson County, IN coroner was called to investigate possibly two deaths in Chelsea. A four-year-old child was believed to be missing there. There were also reports of possible fatalities in Pekin.

A WAVE 3 News crew on the scene confirmed that Henryville Junior-Senior High School was destroyed. There were reports of people trapped inside the school complex. The tornadoes also damaged Borden High School also sustained damage.

The Jeffersonville Fire Department and other emergency agencies were sending search and rescue teams to Henryville.

Leslie Kavanaugh, head of the Clark County Emergency Management Agency, said crews are also responding to reports of damage at the Scott/Washington County line.

24. Not all that common

but not really all that unusual. A few years ago my town had a touchdown in January. They can hit at any time the conditions are ripe.

It was a mild winter so I'd expect an interesting spring.

27. That's terrible

The one and only upside to this winter is that I haven't had to endure one idiot rolling his eyes and saying: "global warming", because we haven't even had a cold snap yet.

I sure hope those in the tornado area are alright.
