Strong storms bring scattered damage to Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A series of strong storms that swept through central Ohio brought high winds and scattered reports of damage.

The storms late Tuesday were part of a powerful weather system that spawned fatal tornadoes in the South.

Winds picked up and flipped a mobile home in the community of Bellville in Richland County, south of Mansfield. In Delaware, just north of Columbus, a roof was blown off a downtown building and onto a car parked on the street.

Downed tree limbs also closed a road in Delaware. Scattered power outages were reported in central Ohio overnight.

Heavy rain also led to flash flood warnings for parts of central and southeast Ohio early Wednesday.
