---- — LEBANON — Homeowners, volunteers, utility linemen and street department crews spent Monday, Nov. 18, cleaning up after an EF-2 tornado blasted through the Lebanon Business Park and skimmed just above a southside neighborhood Sunday afternoon, Nov. 17, collapsing roofs, shredding trees and mangling homes. A preliminary estimate by a National Weather Service survey team said the tornado touched down near County Roads 150 S and 300 W about 4 p.m., traveling 3.5 miles, with a width of 75 yards, before ending in the 1400 blocks of South East and South Meridian streets. An apartment complex is one block east of where the tornado lifted. The funnel cloud was one of three EF-2 tornadoes to hit Indiana, the National Weather Service said.
