GREENWOOD, Ind. (July 1, 2014) — A furniture store in Greenwood spent the start of its morning cleaning up large amounts of glass debris after early storms blew out several windows Tuesday.

The Value City Furniture store on U.S. 31 in the Greenwood Pavilion shopping center still plans to open as scheduled at 10 a.m., but will likely need to rope off a limited number of sections near the damaged windows.

Greenwood police officers noticed the damage while driving by and contacted store management around 4 a.m.

Nobody was in the store at the time and no injuries were reported.

According to Johnson County EMA, the Value City damage was the most significant in that area. A tree also fell on a house on Bomar Street in Greenwood. No one was hurt.

Trees were reportedly blocking the following roads around Johnson County, and crews were working to clear them:

  • 4000 Blk Rocklane Rd
  • Golden Grove Rd
  • 3600 Blk N Harrison St in Needham
  • Needham St & 700E
  • SR 135 & 675W
  • 100N & 150W

There were also reports of downed power lines and power outages.
