COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Storms that soaked much of Ohio and damaged trees and barns with high winds are moving out of the state after leaving about 45,000 customers without power.

An official with the Ohio Emergency Management Agency says straight-line winds topping 70 mph were reported overnight. More than two dozen tornado warnings were issued, but no twisters have been confirmed. No serious injuries were reported to the state.

The State Highway Patrol says several barns were damaged in Wapakoneta. The Auglaize County Sheriff's Department says trees were leveled there.

American Electric Power had more than 39,000 customers in the dark early Wednesday. About 16,000 were in central Ohio's Franklin County.

Morrow County's EMA director tells The Columbus Dispatch there were two reports of possible tornado touchdowns there.
