Weather causes area damage in Frankfort, flipped semis at Walmart

FRANKFORT, Ind. (WISH) — Officials have responded after severe weather has damaged a Frankfort Walmart.

It happened just before 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Walmart located in the 2400 block of East Wabash Street.

The Frankfort Police Department confirmed the damages with a tweet.

The damage done to the Walmart caused it to close for the day.
