Final Count Shows 8 Tornadoes Hit Ohio on Sept. 16

September 23, 2010

National Weather Service final reports show eight tornadoes hit Ohio on Sept. 16, including one that touched down in two separate areas.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the number of tornadoes was the highest recorded in a single day in Ohio in more than four years.

No deaths were reported. At least 13 people were hurt, dozens of homes were destroyed and buildings were wrecked at an Ohio State University facility in northeast Ohio.

In southeast Ohio’s Athens County, officials say a “large amount” of storm cleanup work remains, and they’ve put out a call for volunteers.

The Ohio Emergency Management Agency has been assessing damage throughout the state and is expected to make a determination on whether to seek federal aid.
