Power lines down after storm

Neighboring Peru suffered extensive damage.

A storm Wednesday afternoon resulted in several power lines down in Cass County.

Alivn Beckman, Cass County Emergency Management Agency director, said multiple trees limbs were down throughout the county, including some uprooted trees. He said winds were about 60 to 70 mph in some areas.

Beckman said some telephone poles were snapped on 50 East just south of 400 South in the county.

“There is a lot of flash flooding and standing water on the roadways,” Beckman said. “There could be an additional inch. The county will probably experience flooding and some roads will have water across them.”

The county has a flash flood warning for Cass County through 3:45 p.m.

Beckman said there was extensive damage on west and south sides of Peru.

Kristopher Marks, Miami County EMA director, said multiple trees were down and a Kroger on the west side of town was hit. Marks said they suspect a tornado.

Crews have multiple barricades up and first responders have set up an incident post in town. Logansport Road is closed at Miami County Road 250 West.
