A line of severe weather moved through the area last night, but Findlay and Hancock County were largely spared from any issues. The weather was close enough to cause some concern, though. A tornado warning was issued for northern Hancock County around 8:10 p.m., which led to sirens going off in Findlay for around 20 minutes. No tornadoes touched down in Hancock County
Areas to our west and northwest weren’t as fortunate. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office reports several funnel clouds were spotted Wednesday night. It’s also believed a tornado touched down west of Dupont just after 7:30 p.m. Power lines were knocked down in that area as a result of the storm.
The Henry County Sheriff’s Office said funnel clouds were spotted in the southern part of the county. Further to the north, there was a report of a touchdown near Napoleon. Homes and barns were damaged in that area.
Wood County also had tornado warnings issued throughout the evening, but no tornados are believed to have reached the ground.
There were no reports of injuries as a result of the storm.
