Over the weekend of June 18th, several regions around Indiana experienced some pretty severe weather. As early as 2:30 pm on Friday afternoon, severe thunderstorms were spotted leaving White and Cass Counties and making their way to Carrol and Miami Counties. The thunderstorm was accompanied by heavy rainfall and wind speeds of up to 40mph.

By 2:47 pm, a flash flood watch was issued for parts of central Indiana as the downpour continued. By 3:16 pm, meteorologists began noticing that the storm had some rotation elements and kept a close eye on the storm in the event that a tornado develops. Fifteen minutes later, tornado warnings were issued for Blackford, Grant, Huntington, Wabash, and Wells Counties. A tornado was later spotted in Jay County, moving towards Ohio.

In North Central Indiana, heavy rainfall, damaging winds, and significant hail fall rained down on the area. And several isolated tornadoes formed in the area as well. The tornadoes caused some severe damage in Jay County, near State Road 67 in Bryant, IN.

An intense storm passed over Marion County and was accompanied by significant lightning strikes and strong wind gusts. Hail the size of marbles and golf balls were spotted in Nora.

As the day progressed, bigger and bigger hailstones were spotted throughout the state. In Fishers, a resident recorded one of the trees on her property succumbing to the storm’s strength. Residents were encouraged to stay indoors out of harm’s way as the storm continued to progress.

By Friday evening, more tornado warnings were issued for Shelby and Brown Counties. In Hancock County, the storm downed another tree. Although the tree fell against the property owner’s home, minimal damage was done.

Severe storms continued over the South Central Indiana area, with the threat of flash floods significantly increasing. Drivers were warned to stay off the road and not drive through flooded areas. Some residents documented water seeping into their homes and establishments. Several businesses in Bloomington experienced extensive flood damage.

In the early hours of Saturday, the 19th, Duke Energy reported that 21 000 households were without energy in Indiana. They later reported that there were 627 active outages throughout the state, which affected more than 30 000 households.

Owen County was severely hit by the storm and experienced widespread damages. By Saturday afternoon, the county declared a local disaster, with several damaged bridges and more than 30 road closures throughout the county. In New Palestine, one resident took to social media to document baseball-sized hail which had fallen near their property.

We were in a bad spot with a leaky roof down at work but being a small business owner I can’t afford to be taken advantage of. So glad we chose PFM. Brad gave us a great deal was professional and fixed everything in a timely manner. What a blessing.

Like many of the homes in the area, we had some shingles blow off after being hit hard by Wednesday evenings storm. There was not an excessive amount of damage, but enough that we needed some minor repairs.I spoke with a couple of different companies on Thursday. While they were friendly, their main objective was to take a deposit to put a tarp on my roof and try to get my insurance company involved.While considering the options I noticed PFM Roofing was completing a job just up the road, so I stopped off to talk with Rusty and his crew. They were happy to speak with me and look over some photos I had taken of the damage. After a short conversation he quoted me a reasonable amount to complete the repairs, and even better told me he could have it done the next day. Sure enough, today they showed up to replace the missing shingles and nail down any other shingles that had been raised by the storm.Overall it was a great experience. If you are in the same boat and have some roof damage that needs worked on it is worth your time to give these guys a call!

We called PFM to come repair the repair made by a less reputable company. I had some questions so the owner promptly reached out to me and took plenty of time to address them one by one. I could tell he takes great pride in his company's work and wants his customers to be 100% satisfied. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of professional roofing services.
