COLUMBUS, Ohio -

Governor John Kasich has declared a state of emergency for debris removal in Columbiana County.

A severe storm and down burst caused damage to several homes and downed trees and power lines in the city of Lisbon, Wednesday evening.

The emergency declaration enables the Ohio Department of Transportation to assist local officials with debris removal and road clearing.

Initial damage assessments by the Columbiana County Emergency Management Agency showed that between 20 and 25 homes sustained damage caused by downed trees.

The City of Lisbon and Columbiana County announced local emergency declarations, effective Friday.

The proclamation will remain in effect until the emergency no longer exists, which will be determined by the Executive Director of the Emergency Management Agency, who will coordinate state response efforts.

At 3:00 p.m. Friday, the First Energy website showed that all power had been restored to Lisbon.
