EDITOR'S NOTE: This story has been modified to correct the county the EF-1 tornado was confirmed in.

The National Weather Service has determined that an EF-0 tornado with winds of 80 miles per hour occurred in Champion and Southington Townships in the county.

The tornado touched down near State Route 305 east of Hoffman Norton Road just after 7:00 p.m. and lasted about five minutes.

The tornado traveled northeast to Oak Hill Drive and then to Downs Road. On Downs Road, Don Barrett couldn't believe what he saw. 

"I lucked out compared to some people around me but it is going to be a lot of cleanup, a lot of trees that will take some time to clean up," Barrett said. 

Barrett knows it could have been a lot worse. A tree snapped in his front yard and his roof was missing some shingles. Next door though, a massive tree uprooted, smashing a car, destroying a garage and smashing out a window on his neighbor's house. 

"I just heard like a roar, it was just like a roar of wind," Barrett said. "People say it sounds like a train or something going through, but it was just like a roar, it didn’t last long, it went by quick."

One resident also reported a trampoline wrapped around a telephone pole.

Along 305 in Southington Township, a number of massive trees were uprooted in the yard of Brian Abramovich.

"I thought it was just gonna end up being a few limbs down until I walked out and saw the doors blown out and everything is off the foundation," Abramovich said.

The roof of his barn was caved in and the walls bowed out. Abramovich says all he can do now is move forward.

"I think it’s going to take a day for it to all settle in and then we’ll get a plan of action and we’ll go hard at it," Abramovich said. "It took me 32 years to build the place and I’m not a quitter, I’m just going to keep moving and rebuild it."

Meanwhile, Windham near the Portage and Trumbull County Line also experienced extensive storm damage including several downed trees and the side of a house being ripped off.

Earlier Thursday, the National Weather Service had confirmed that an EF-1 tornado had touched down in Portage County.

Some Windham residents told 21 News they did not hear any tornado sirens despite the heavy storms in the area. Windham Fire Lieutenant Eric Mathews confirmed that this was due to a mechanical issue.
