No injuries were reported, but a barn was destroyed and some property damage was reported. The tornado took down some fencing in a Zionsville neighborhood. "We’ve had a barn that got struck by the high winds; I believe a funnel cloud came down. I can’t confirm that at this point in time.

CBS News - A farm worker overcome by fumes while loading pig manure onto a truck in Ohio; a convenience store clerk shot during an attempted robbery in New Jersey. Both men are among the 150 job-related fatalities in the U.S. every day, many of which federal regulators say are preventable. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) this month proposed fines against the companies involved in these two incidents, saying employee safety had been disregarded. On average, 13 workers were fatally injured and more than 10,000 were hurt or made ill every day in 2014, according to a report released this week.

An early morning storm system left areas of Biloxi and Gulfport with as much as 12 inches of rain in about a five-hour stretch, according to the National Weather Service. As standing water begins to run off into streams and rivers, Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy said, several rivers will flood.

Workers' Compensation Institute - Workers’ compensation reforms are paying off in Texas, where costs per claim are falling, even as wages are rising. The per-capita average of $30,313 for combined medical, indemnity and benefit expenses is 23 percent lower than the $39,273 median cost in the 17 other states studied by the Workers Compensation Research Institute. Texas’ workers’ compensation expenses were nearly 40 percent below those in neighboring Louisiana. Back in 2000, Texas had the highest medical payments per claim among the states surveyed by the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI).

The car insurance comparison site’s findings showed that California dominated the list of cities with the highest average speed in fatal crashes. In fact, 11 of the top 20 cities are in the Golden State.
