The National Weather Service in Wilmington OH has confirmed a
tornado 3 Miles Southwest of Wilmington in Clinton County Ohio on

Widespread damage across western and central Clinton County is
still being surveyed at this time. Damage was due to a combination
of very strong thunderstorm winds, with some areas also showing
indications of tornado damage.

Damage extends from the far west central border of Clinton County,
with this damage initially appearing to be caused by straight line
winds. Further east into the county along McGuinn Road, between
Route 730 and U.S. 68, there was evidence of damage caused by a
tornado. Substantial damage was sustained to a house and garage
along McGuinn Road.

With the damage survey still ongoing, the exact start and end
point of the tornado path are still being determined. Complicating
the survey is the significant and widespread straight line wind
damage also through the same area.

An additional report with more detail will be issued late this
afternoon or early evening.
