Tornado, Severe Storms Damage Homes in Ohio

June 26, 2014

Parts of Ohio are again cleaning up after severe storms rolled through — including a tornado that touched down in northeast Ohio.

The National Weather Service confirmed a high EF1 or EF2 tornado touched down on June 23 evening in Brunswick, about 30 miles southwest of Cleveland. Some homes were significantly damaged and are uninhabitable, but police say nobody was hurt.

A shelter was set up at the Brunswick Recreation Center for displaced residents.

Flooding from severe storms also was reported in Summit and Medina counties near Cleveland. In central Ohio, downed trees and high water closed some roads early on June 24, and scattered power outages were reported.
