CLEVELAND - A strong cold front brought heavy rains and high winds to much of northeast Ohio Saturday evening.

The National Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm warnings for Geauga, Ashtabula and Trumbull Counties around 5 p.m. after storms intensified to severe levels.

Damage was reported in Trumbull County where a barn was destroyed just west of Kinsman and four to five telephone poles were knocked down and two trees at Routes 193 and Route 87.

Another tree was also reported across the road in Greene Township which is also in Trumbull County.

In Ashtabula County, a few trees were reported downed in Geneva and several large limbs were snapped off in Jefferson. Hail up to one inch was also reported across several parts of the county.

Doppler radar estimated rainfall amounts between one half inch to over one inch throughout most of the Channel 3 viewing area with these storms.
