YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A line of strong thunderstorms rolled through the Valley around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday evening.

Mill Creek Park still has several streets that will be closed until they are fully cleared.  Crews will continue working to clear the roadways until they run out of daylight. The following roads are still closed:  East Park, East Glacier, West Golf, Chestnut Hill, West Drive, Valley Drive and the Flats area.

In Leetonia, there are reports of 15 to 20 trees down on Grafton Road. Witnesses reported very strong, straight line winds in the area.

Lisbon was also hit hard in Columbiana County. Officials have evacuated South Lincoln and Green Street in the city due to a gas leak triggered by a downed tree.  Many trees and wires are down across the city.

A shelter has been set up at First Christian Church on East Washington Street.

This is a developing story. Check back here or later newscasts for more details as they become available.
