The images were remarkable of a storm front moving through Montgomery County late Sunday. 

Pictures posted on social media showed a shelf cloud at the front end of a storm with heavy rain and strong winds that caused damage mostly in Waynetown.

“A shelf cloud is not as dangerous as a wall cloud,” said Shari Harrington, director of the Montgomery County Emergency Management Agency. “Shelf clouds don’t carry as much rotation as a wall cloud would. They’re still dangerous, they’re just not as dangerous.”

Harrington said she didn’t receive any reports of major damage, but downed trees closed U.S. 136 and two side streets in Waynetown, and S.R. 234 near Shades State Park. And 2.11 inches of rain was recorded Sunday at the EMS offices in Crawfordsville.

“It’s just weird Indiana weather,” Harrington said.
