Severe Ohio storms bring down trees, flooding, outages

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Strong storms that have rolled through Ohio downed trees, flooded roads and left thousands without power.

High winds associated with the Wednesday night storms blew off part of the roof of a high school gym in Geauga County in northeast Ohio. Downed tree limbs and water on roadways were being reported early Thursday throughout central and northeast Ohio after a night of dramatic thunder and lightning strikes.

More than 10,000 customers were without power in northeast Ohio, and nearly 15,000 in central Ohio before dawn Thursday.

The Wednesday night storms came as residents of Summit and Stark counties in northeast Ohio were dealing with widespread flooding from heavy rain earlier in the week.
