"We have tree limbs down and I don't know about the number of power lines down, but I know that we have power outages, including my own house," said Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn Sunday night.
A house partially collapsed in the 400 block of Main Street in Jerry City during the storm. Two victims reportedly were injured and taken to Wood County Hospital. An unconfirmed report indicated that the injured parties were an adult and a child.
Wasylyshyn also said he'd heard unofficial reports of wind gusts in excess of 80 to 85 miles per hour.
On Sunday night, more than 1,500 First Energy customers were reportedly without power near Ohio 25, just south of Perrysburg, in Rossford, and in the area of Lime City Road and Fremont Pike, according to the company's website. And as many as 500 were without power in Scotch Ridge, and on Defiance Pike, southwest of Wayne.
"There are areas from, obviously, Jerry City that had really high winds come across the whole county. But damage in Jerry City, Perrysburg Township and Lake Township," said Wasylyshyn.
Wasylyshyn also confirmed that a tornado warning was called for Wood County, but said that no tornado was sited. He indicated that currently the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning when the conditions are ideal for a tornado to occur.
The warning was issued around 5 p.m. and was cancelled around 6 p.m. A precise time was not available.
