ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Dramatic new police dashcam video captures an EF-1 tornado touching down near Zionsville last Thursday.

Footage from the dashcam of Zionsville Police Department Officer Nick Baldwin shows the twister in the distance as rain pelts his windshield.

“[The tornado] appears to be close to [County Road] 300 South and [County Road] 800 East,” Baldwin says into his radio.

“Wow!” he adds a few moments later.

The National Weather Service said the tornado carried winds of 100 mph. A barn was heavily damage, but no one was injured in the storms, Zionsville police said.

This is the third tornado to hit central Indiana in under a week. Last Tuesday, the National Weather Service said a tornado made ground contact in Greene County, and an EF-1 twister touched down in Montgomery County on Sunday.
