Tuesday storms damage homes in Bentwood subdivision

PLAINFIELD, Ind. (WISH)-Many people were home in the Bentwood subdivision when the tornado came through Tuesday afternoon.

On Zachary Court homeowners and contractors are cleaning up debris after the tornado hit the neighborhood.

“I’m very thankful that nobody was hurt,” said Francie Robbins.

David Daniels owns a home in the cul-de-sac. Daniels wasn’t home, but was on the phone with his son Jacob who rode out the tornado inside the home.

“Everything started to shake and things started flying so I went into my game room,” said Jacob.

The Daniels took 24-Hour News 8 inside to see some of the damage left behind. Debris from another home hit the back of their house, knocking a medicine cabinet off the kitchen wall.

“This window came flying into the side of the wall and punched a hole that big. You could fit your whole arm in it,” said David.

But that’s just part of the damage; Upstairs in Jacobs bedroom a piece of aluminum gutter from someone’s home came through the wall.

“That’s frightening cause I sit there and play my XBox and I just do it all the time. It’s scary if I was actually there,” Jacob said.

Outside, the homeowners showed us where the gutter went inside the home. Construction crews helped clean up debris and covered up some of the damage.

“Right when we first got here I noticed there was a chunk of shingles missing off the front; nothing too crazy,” said Contractor Sean Mattingly.

Debris also hit the back of Robbins house. She said if this is all that was done, she’s very thankful.

“Blessed; very blessed,” she said.

Again, no one in the neighborhood was injured during the tornado.
