Tornadoes, damage reported as storms blow into western Ohio

VAN WERT, Ohio (AP) — A spokesman for the state Emergency Management Agency says damage was reported at a mobile home park and other sites across four northwest Ohio counties after storms that spurred multiple twisters in Indiana moved across the state line.

Spokesman Jay Carey said Wednesday night that damage and downed power lines were reported in Defiance, Henry, Paulding and Van Wert counties. He said some damage assessments were being delayed because affected areas were still dealing with potentially dangerous weather.

He said one minor injury had been reported, but he didn’t have details about that or the damaged mobile home park north of Defiance.

The deputy director of the Van Wert County Emergency Management Agency, Craig Staley, said at least two tornadoes hit that county, and a possible third was reported.
