High Winds Cause Damage in Ohio

February 27, 2012

Home and business owners are cleaning up after high winds swept across Ohio, damaging buildings and traffic lights and bringing down trees and power lines from Dayton to Youngstown.

Meteorologists say winds reaching 55 mph or more were reported in some pockets of the state Friday.

The Vindicator in Youngstown reports gusts blew a section of bricks off the outside of a Honda store, damaging a handful of cars parked nearby.

In Lorain, west of Cleveland, The Morning Journal reported a garage was crushed when the winds uprooted a large tree.

The Dayton Daily News says the winds also ripped off part of a building façade.

Most of the reported damage involved fallen branches and temporary power outages. There were no reports of serious injuries.
