Indiana hospitals treated 77 people injured from the tornadoes that struck last week.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security said the total does not include the number of injured treated in the field by medics.

Several agencies are gathering storm data.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency arrived in Indiana Tuesday. The team will help determine if Indiana qualifies for federal assistance.

Power remains out to hundreds of people in Clark County where a curfew remains in effect from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Debris in Clark County alone adds up to more than one-million cubic yards--that's enough to fill up more than 100,000 dump trucks.

The Salvation Army is providing meals in Henryville, Marysville and Bordon. A roaming food site is expected to arrive in Henryville sometime during the next 24-hours.

The March 2 tornadoes killed 13 people in southern Indiana and at least 38 in the nation.
