One of the first reports of damage came from the North Ridgeville Police Department, who reported that Route 83 north was closed after a fallen tree took down power wires at around 5:30 p.m.

As the storms moved eastward into Cuyahoga County, our 3News cameras were out and caught these images of storm damage, including in spots in Westlake and Bay Village.
