Tornado watches issued for Midwestern states

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Just eight days after a deadly tornado struck southwestern Indiana, another strong storm system rolled across the nation's midsection Tuesday, producing funnel clouds in at least three states.

The National Weather Service issued tornado watches and warnings for the Evansville area, as well as for parts of Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois and Kentucky.

Funnel clouds were sighted in Indiana and Illinois, but it was unclear how many remained aloft or touched the ground. There were no immediate reports of serious injuries.
