TOLEDO, Ohio — The National Weather Service says straight line winds nearing 100 mph destroyed a barn and toppled trees in Brown County southeast of Cincinnati in storms that hit the state overnight.
Weather service crews are out in western Ohio and near Columbus to determine if winds caused any of the damage there.
The storms pushed trees into houses, ripped roofs off stores and knocked out power from the southern end of the state all the way up to Lake Erie.
The worst of the storms began late Tuesday and continued overnight. So far, no injuries have been reported.
The high winds blew over rail cars and tractor-trailers in northwest Ohio.
The storm tore away the roofs of a grocery store and a home improvement store in the western Ohio town of Celina (suh-LEYE'-nuh).
