Suspected tornado causes 3 injuries in southwest Ohio

GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — At least three people were injured, hundreds of homes were damaged and thousands were

without power Wednesday after a suspected tornado and severe thunderstorms passed through southwest Ohio.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed, the National Weather Service says radar data

and images from the Goshen area indicate a tornado did touch down at about 3 p.m.

and was responsible for at least some of the damage in the city and Clermont County.

According to WLWT Channel 5, three injuries have been reported so far, although none are serious.

One of the injuries was caused by flying debris.

A fire department took a “direct hit,” according to reports, although emergency workers

were able to get vehicles out of the building.
