Weather service says 2 low-level tornadoes hit western Ohio

SPRINGFIELD, OHIO - The National Weather Service has confirmed that two weak tornadoes touched down in western Ohio as severe storms rolled through the region earlier this week.

The twisters were reported Wednesday evening in Clark County near the village of Enon. They were rated EF-0, indicating wind speeds between 65 mph and 85 mph (105 and 137 kph). No injuries were reported.

Officials say damage to a number of buildings in the area was attributed more to straight-line winds that damaged homes and trees. At one farm, roofing peeled off of barns and was blown into a home, damaging it.
