Decatur, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- There was also significant damage in Adams County where many residents were still without power Friday night.

Strong winds in Decatur brought down countless trees and tree limbs scattering debris onto area roadways and damaging several cars and homes.

Residents there say the sudden storm caught them off guard.

Decatur resident Leah Thomas says, "All of a sudden it got so dark and the trees started blowing and then it all came down. I'm just amazed at how many trees are down."

"It was really dark and really windy. I was up in my room and my brother just heard this really loud crash and I came down and we came out and all these trees were out," says Decatur resident Taylor Kuhnle.

While it could take some time to clean up all of the damage left behind emergency officials tell Indiana's NewsCenter no injuries have been reported at this time.
