Posted: Updated:
CALCUTTA, Ohio -

The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh has confirmed that a tornado touched down in the southern Columbiana County community of Calcutta on Sunday just after 7 PM.

The weather service classified the tornado as an EF1, which would be accompanied by winds of 90 miles per hour.

The tornado began along Calcutta-Smithferry road and traveled 1 mile to Plaza Drive. 

It destroyed a garage along Calcutta-Smithferry Road and uprooted trees on Lakeview Circle. 

Firefighters were called out after Sunday's storms to answer a report of a blown transformer and roof damage in the area of the Calcutta YMCA

Officials at the Y tell 21 News that crews are cleaning up substantial water damage.

Wes Milhoan witnessed the tornado first hand as a funnel cloud lowered over his Calcutta-Smithferry Road home. "We ran downstairs, got my dog, and ran downstairs and it was just loud like it sounded like a freight train coming through," he adds.
