Surveyors confirm at least 3 EF1 tornadoes caused damage in Northeast Ohio on Sunday

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The National Weather Service confirmed at least three EF1 tornadoes touched down in portions of Cuyahoga, Portage, and Trumbull counties on Sunday afternoon.

Surveyors discovered that the first tornado touched down in the Glenwillow area of Cuyahoga County just before 3:30 p.m.

The tornado’s path measured approximately two miles long.

Maximum wind speeds were measured at approximately 90 miles per hour.

“By the time we got down to the basement it was over. I came outside and looked to assess the damage and it was like a disaster outside. It could be worse. The tree could have fell on the house while we were inside,” said local homeowner James Kelly. “I’ve been here over 30-something years and this has never happened. I don’t expect it to happen again for another 30 years. If it does, I won’t be around,”

The tornado sheared tree trunks in half and caused minor damage to buildings in Cuyahoga County.

The second EF1 tornado was confirmed to have impacted parts of Portage and Trumbull counties.

Maximum wind speeds were estimated at 100 miles per hour.

A third tornado was recorded in Trumbull County.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the either tornado.
