OHIO — The National Weather Service sent several teams out Thursday to conduct surveys after storms swept across the state Wednesday night, leaving flooded roads and damaged properties behind them.

NWS has confirmed three tornadoes from the storms.

A suspected tornado ripped away a gas station canopy and heavily damaged a restaurant and a discount store early Thursday in the eastern Ohio village of Frazeysburg. Eight people suffered minor injuries, mostly from flying debris, said Jeff Jadwin, the emergency management director in Muskingum County.

The storm’s path followed the village’s main street, leaving a trail of uprooted trees and damaged homes from one end to the other, he said. He estimated that at least 100 homes were hit, several of which were destroyed. The village of 1,500 people is about 50 miles east of Columbus.

Frazeysburg Police Department said 3rd Street was "technically passable" Thursday morning after being closed off. The department said in a Facebook post that most of the storm damage appeared "around the west village limits to State St, almost directly down 3rd St. Areas to the north and south of 3rd St appear to be largely undamaged, as is the east end of town."

The department recommended travelers to head east toward the OH-16 highway ramps as an alternate route to avoid debris and downed power lines.

"Exercise caution regardless, and be mindful of crews working to clear damage and restore power," the department said in its post. "We will let you know if the road needs to be closed."

Flash flooding was a concern through the night as well, including in Logan, Union, Delaware and Knox counties.

Because of the notable damage from the storms, NWS Pittsburgh will send a team to Frazeysburg to conduct a storm survey.

Knox County and the area south of Mount Vernon also saw some storm damage, according to NWS Cleveland and the county emergency management agency.

Knox County EMA Director James DeChant confirmed there was damage in the way of trees downed on utility lines, some roads blocked and damage to a barn that lost half its roof. He also said there was some localized flooding in the downtown area of Mount Vermont and some county and township roadways. 

There were no reported injuries, according to DeChant.

NWS Cleveland confirmed they are sending a team to the area today to survey the damage. They have received reports about damage to a building on Possum Street and a large tree downed on Sycamore Road.
