Rowdy weather spawning reports of wind damage


As Storm Center 7 alerted the region to the possibility of wind damage from Thursday's expected storms, reports of incidents attributed to high winds filtered in all night long through the National Weather Service, area emergency management agencies as well as police and fire dispatchers:

  • Midnight: Montgomery County fire crews reporting damage to a barn serious enough to ask that National Weather Service investigators be called out to survey the damage for wind patterns.
  • 11:59 p.m.: Tree reportedly has fallen on a house in Brookville. A section of the tree remains on the roof. No reports of injuries.
  • 11:30 p.m.: Reports of uprooted trees and possible damage to roofs on North Sayers Road in Troy, Miami County.
  • 9:54 p.m.: In Franklin, tree limbs were reported on wires, causing sparking. A fire crew was dispatched.
  • 9:38 p.m.: Lightning strike reported in Middletown, at 14th and Verity, according to police dispatch. A caller reported to police that a pole had been hit and was on fire.
  • 4 p.m.: 1 person was taken to a hospital after a large tree was reported to have fallen onto three moving vehicles on U.S. 23, a mile north of Portsmouth in Scioto County. The county emergency management office reported wind gusts of 45 mph earlier in the afternoon.
