(Toledo News Now) -
The National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes touched down in northwest Ohio during Wednesday's storms.
After surveying Thursday, tornadoes were confirmed in Bellevue and Reed Township.
Bellevue's tornado hit around 3:15 p.m. and had a maximum wind speed of 75 mph. It was estimated to be 50 yards wide at its largest point and to have traveled just under a mile. However, it was only classified as an EF0. According to the NWS, the initial touchdown occurred along Flat Rock Road just north of Kilbourne Street.
The tornado may have been at treetop level because most of the damage was confined to trees and rooftops. Many homes sustained minor damage, including the loss of rooftops and siding. Several homes sustained significant damage from fallen trees. Nearly every street in the city had fallen power lines and trees.
Reed Township's tornado hit around 2:30 p.m. and had a maximum wind speed of 90 mph. It was also measured at 50 yards wide, but was classified as an EF1, and traveled just over 10 miles. The initial touchdown occurred in Seneca County near the intersection of County Road 27 and Township Road 122.
Damage along its path consisted mainly of fallen trees, however, some structures did sustain extensive damage. Several barns lost sections of roofs and one home near the initial touchdown had a second-story wall partially collapse. Another house had its attached garage lifted from its foundation. Crop damage - especially to corn - was significant.
