Many areas of northwest Ohio escaped serious damage when a large line of severe thunderstorms moved across the Midwest, but two area counties weren’t quite as lucky.
Locally, the hardest hit area was Henry County, where the county dispatch center reported heavy damage in some parts of the county. Several barns were reportedly downed by straight-line winds in the area of County Road H.
A trailer was knocked off its foundation by a downed tree on Ohio 109.
Power lines were also downed by the storm.
In Putnam County, a house trailer was flipped over on County Road B-12. Three occupants of the home sustained injuries and were taken to area hospitals.
Minor storm damage was reported in Defiance, Paulding and Williams counties.
