Suspected tornado hits rural Ohio community

Associated Press

A suspected tornado hit a rural Ohio community, as the storm that pummeled the South made its way to the Northeast.

The Times Gazette reported several homes and businesses were damaged after an apparent tornado struck Shelby, Ohio, about 4 p.m. Sunday.

Shelby is about 90 miles from Cleveland.

The Richland County Emergency Management Agency reported about a half-dozen homes were damaged and at least six people were taken to a hospital to be treated for storm-related injuries.

The National Weather Service has issued tornado watch warnings for parts of Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Sunday's warnings come as a severe storm in the South destroyed homes, hospitalized people and caused the deaths of eight people.
