NEWBURGH, Ind. -- Southwestern Indiana police say a severe thunderstorm has damaged several homes in the historic Ohio River town of Newburgh.

Warrick County Chief Deputy Sheriff Marvin Heilman says no injuries were reported after high winds swept the town about 6 a.m. CST Wednesday. He says straight-line winds or possibly a tornado damaged the homes, some of which were hit by falling trees.

Heilman said the damage was in the historic district of the town, which was founded in 1803 and was once a bustling Ohio River port town. Newburgh is located about 15 miles east of Evansville.

The storm that moved through was part a powerful storm system carrying a string of possible tornadoes that battered a tourist hub and mobile home park in southwest Missouri.
