STOW, Ohio (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed four weak tornadoes touched down in northeast Ohio Wednesday evening.

Meteorologist Gary Garnet says the twisters developed from the same thunderstorm, and all four were given the weakest rating of EF-0.

The first occurred near Stow High School in Summit County and lasted about a minute or two with winds reaching 85 mph. The three other touchdowns occurred in Portage County near Franklin Township, Streetsboro and Hiram, each with winds between 74 and 80 mph.

The weather service reported some roof damage in Stow as well as minor damage to the Stow High School football field. Minor tree damage was reported from the Portage County tornadoes.

No injuries were reported.

FirstEnergy says more than 1,600 customers were without power at the storm’s peak.
