Ohio Utilities Restoring Power After Storm

Nov 18, 2013

More than 30,000 customers in in Ohio were still without power early Monday after a strong storm system rolled through the state.

The Sunday evening storm brought strong winds that blew down trees and power lines and damaged some structures, including the rectory at a church in northwest Ohio and a barn in central Ohio. Some minor injuries were reported.

The storm ripped through several states in the Midwest Sunday, spawning tornadoes and tearing through homes and overturning cars along its path. At least six people were killed in Illinois.

Some reports of funnel clouds in Ohio have not yet been confirmed. A statewide tornado watch was canceled after the serious storms moved out of Ohio by 10 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
