A house was completely leveled, flooded, and trees fell

WEST UNION, Ohio – A radar-confirmed tornado hit the town in Adams County Tuesday night causing significant damage in West Union.

A tornado was confirmed over land by National Weather Service radar around 7:50 p.m. Tuesday night. Our WCPO 9 meteorologists were monitoring the increase in shear rate, predicting a tornado on the ground just before NWS radar confirmed it.

The storm was moving northeast at 55 mph, with sustained winds of 60 to 70 mph across Adams County.

Our crews in West Union were working Wednesday morning to clear damaged homes, flooding, fallen trees and debris from the road.

A home on Robinson Hollow Road was destroyed and at least one person was taken to the hospital Tuesday night. So far, no major injuries have been reported. As of 9 a.m. Wednesday, more than 2,000 people were without power in the area.

Schools in the area are closed Wednesday for storm cleanup.

Officials are assessing the damage. We have a team in Adams County gathering more information. We will update this story further.
