Storms Wreak Havoc Throughout Ohio

April 15, 2019

As most of you know, Ohio experienced a lot of storms yesterday.

Some places (like where I live in Parma Heights) only saw some wind and heavy rain; other places (like Ravenna) saw so much hail it looked like snow.

And of course, Shelby actually had a tornado that completely destroyed some homes and put a handful of people in the hospital.

Check out these photos and videos of yesterday's storms:

Now that we're in spring, it's important to remember your tornado safety measures.

I still hear a lot of people question the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning- a tornado watch means that conditions are favorable to produce a tornado, whereas a tornado warning means that a tornado has been sighted or picked up on radar.
