Ohio Cleaning Up From Tornado, Severe Storms

BRUNSWICK, Ohio (AP) — Parts of Ohio are again cleaning up after severe storms rolled through — including a tornado that touched down in northeast Ohio.

The National Weather Service confirmed a high EF1 or EF2 tornado touched down Monday evening in Brunswick, about 30 miles southwest of Cleveland. Some homes were significantly damaged and are uninhabitable, but police say nobody was hurt. Crews planned to finish assessing damage on Tuesday.

A shelter was set up at the Brunswick Recreation Center for displaced residents.

Flooding from severe storms also was reported in Summit and Medina counties near Cleveland. In central Ohio, downed trees and high water closed some roads early Tuesday, and scattered power outages were reported.
