MOSCOW, OH (FOX19) -
Clermont County building inspectors have completed an initial assessment of homes, buildings, and other structures damaged following Friday's tornado and violent storms. Of the 287 buildings impacted in Franklin Township, Tate Township, Washington Township, and the Village of Moscow, 257 have been determined to be in need of repairs.
Repairs require that permits be obtained and inspectionsperformed before occupancy.
"Our inspectors completed the initial assessments this evening," said Director of the Clermont County Building Department Carl Lamping.
The initial damage estimate has found the following:
Franklin Township has 11 structures with major damage, 21 with minor damage, and 5 with slight damage
Tate Township has 32 structures with major damage, 71 with minor damage, and 23 with slight damage
Washington Township has 8 structures with heavy damage, 13 with minor damage, and 2 with slight damage
The Village of Moscow has 47 structures with major damage, and 54 structures with minor damage.
Due to damage in Moscow, the Clermont County Board of Elections is moving the polling location for Tuesday's primary election to the Washington Township Fire House, 2817 Mill Street in Point Isabel. The post office has also been moved to the Washington Township Administration Building on SR 756.
"We will continue to evaluate the damaged structures and inspect any completed repairs to the structures as they are requested by the public," said Lamping.
Citizens will find red tags on the doors of their homes and businesses if they have been determined to have suffered major damage, yellow tags are for minor damage, and green tags are for slight damage.
Generally, repairs to buildings with red or yellow tags will require permits and inspections by the Clermont County Building Department. For more information, contact Clermont County Permit Central at 732-7213 or visit the website at www.Permit.ClermontCountyOhio.gov.
Calvary Baptist Church in Moscow has set up a distribution center to take donations of clothing, non-perishable food, water, personal hygiene products and diapers.
