Scattered reports of property damage, downed trees, limbs, power poles and utility lines resulted from a line of severe thunderstorms and a possible tornado that started marching through Wood County just before midnight Wednesday.

There were no reports of injuries.

Tornado sirens sounded three times in less than an hour, the first time just after midnight. The tornado warning was canceled by 1 a.m. today.

Wind damage seemed to be consistent across a swath in Milton Township in southwest Wood County. North of Ohio 281 on Custar Road two trees were uprooted and three utility poles snapped off. Sentinel-Tribune Photographer J.D. Pooley reported at 7:15 this morning that a field of corn that stood about a foot tall had been bent over.

The Wood County Sheriff's office reported a garage damaged in the 24000 block of Route 281, which would be west of Custar Road.

Approximately 11 utility poles were reported down on Roundhead Road about a mile west of Custar. There was also damage scattered around the village of Custar.

A utility pole hangs over a ditch along Custar Road just north of Custar.

Behind the Milton Township Fire Station on Milton Road there were a couple of large sheets of metal. A resident in Milton Center told Pooley a large tree had fallen across Mermill Road during the storm but had since been removed.

About 1 a.m. Milton Township Volunteer Firefighters were paged to respond to the station "normal traffic" to help survey the area for storm damage. Route 281 runs through Milton Township and Custar is the biggest village in the township.

Power lines and tree limbs or whole trees were reported down at numerous locations ranging from Liberty Hi Road at Bowling Green Road West, to the 14000 block of Euler Road, the area of Emerson and Robbins Road, the 18000 block of Hull Prairie Road and River Road in the Perrysburg.

A tree was reported to have fallen through the roof of a home in the 24000 block of Euler Road.
