Damage reports minimal following overnight tornado warning

Local rainfall was modest, despite lightning that lit the skies and a tornado warning sandwiched between consecutive severe thunderstorm warnings that lasted until well after midnight.

Some county residents lost power for a time, and there were reports of high water covering roads overnight, the Logan County Engineer’s Office said.

High water signs are still out on County Road 40, and crews will return today to clean up the rest of a downed tree on County Road 88 that reportedly fell onto a Dayton Power and Light Co. power line. DP&L crews responded to that location overnight and assisted, said Todd Bumgardner, general superintendent with the engineer’s office, adding that all county roads were open as of this morning.

The Bellefontaine wastewater treatment plant reported .32 inches of rain Monday, bringing the July total to 4.99 inches in the city. National Weather Service observer Wayne Wickerham of Huntsville reported 1.64 inches of rain.
