COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Many Ohioans are still cleaning up from a wave of powerful storms that downed trees and power lines, tore off roofs and dumped even more rain on an already saturated state.

The severe weather Wednesday evening snarled traffic and left many homes in the dark — some of them still without power Thursday morning. Winds of 70 mph or more were reported in several areas.

In northeast Ohio, the storms downed power lines, brought down a section of wall at a commuter train station and trapped motorists in high water on interstates. No injuries were reported.

In northwest Ohio, the high winds flipped tractor-trailer trucks on Interstate 75.

Flood warnings are still in effect for some counties, but clear skies are predicted for Thursday.
