Tornado Damages Southwest Ohio High School

LYNCHBURG, Ohio (AP) — The National Weather Service confirms that a tornado touched down in southwest Ohio, damaging a high school and some homes.

There were no injuries from the Wednesday afternoon F-O tornado in Highlands County, east of Cincinnati. But the storm broke off trees and caused minor damage to Lynchburg-Clay High School.

School is out for the summer, but there were some students in the gymnasium as part of a basketball camp when the tornado touched down.

The weather service says the tornado was in the ground for about four miles, with winds as high as 85 mph.
