Severe Storms Leave a Mess at Frankfort Walmart, Delay Carmel Fun

If you were waiting for the ice rink to open, you'll have to wait another day.

FRANKFORT, Ind.--Severe storms damaged homes and businesses and knocked out power for at least 15,000 people in central Indiana, through the first half of Saturday.

 
The Walmart in Frankfort was closed after winds damaged the inside of the store and may have caused structural damage. Other pictures from around Frankfort and Clinton County showed damage to power lines and neighborhoods.
 
In Carmel, if you were waiting for the opening of the Christkindlmarkt and ice rink at Center Green, you'll get your chance to participate Sunday, 1 to 9 p.m., a day late, thanks to the weather.
 
Duke Energy reported 5,000 people without power, and IPL reported about 6,000, at the storms peak.
 
The storms also caused street flooding in and around Indianapolis.
 
A cold front passed through Saturday afternoon, dropping the temperature and bringing an end to the severe weather.
