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 there was damage in Defiance, Henry, Paulding and Van Wert counties. Carey says one minor injury was reported.

The Defiance County Emergency Management Agency says the area around a mobile home park in the county sustained the most damage. Roads around it were blocked off.

Officials in Van Wert County say at least two tornadoes touched down about 2 miles apart. Roofs were blown off homes and barns were destroyed.

There were reports of downed trees and power lines around the area.
