COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The National Weather Service says at least six tornadoes touched down in Ohio during violent midweek storms.

Forecasters have confirmed three tornadoes in Henry County and one each in Delaware, Wood and Van Wert counties from the storms late Wednesday and into Thursday.

Officials say the first touchdown was a tornado in Willshire in Van Wert County with maximum winds of about 80 mph and the lowest severity ranking of EF-0.

A slightly more intense EF-1 tornado with gusts of 95 mph was reported near Malinta in Henry County. The same storm produced an EF-0 tornado in Malinta, two EF-0 tornados in Wood County, in Custar and near Hamler, and an EF-0 tornado near Radnor in Delaware County in central Ohio.

The Weather Service says its reports are preliminary.
