Tornado touched down in Clermont County

CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in Clermont County early Saturday morning.

The NWS reported the tornado touched down around 12:40 a.m. in Stonelick Township.

The NWS says the tornado was an EF0, with a maximum wind speed of 70 to 75 miles-per-hour.

According to the NWS advisory, the tornado traveled 300 yards total. The path went through the backyard of Robert King who says the noise got his attention. "I was in the house and heard a tree crash down on my daughter's room, but it didn't hurt our house."

King spent Saturday afternoon clearing storm debris.  King says his house was spared, but his neighbors weren't so lucky. "I ran out and the neighbor's house was tore up and I went over to help them."

Two houses located behind King's suffered heavy damage.  Their roofs were torn off and signs posted in the windows warn that the homes are unsafe to occupy.

There were three homes and a barn with minor to major roof damage, as well as a porch lifted from a home and thrown several yards.

King says he wants to make sure the broken limbs dangling from his tree don't cause any damage. "Just getting the branches to where none of them will come out in any type of wind where my grand babies and kids don't get hurt."

In Wayne Township, there was some additional damage in the 6100 block of Taylor Pike. 

Several homes had damage to roofing shingles and flashing with the garage doors of four north-facing homes all bowed outward.

The NWS believe this damage is consistent with straight line winds.

No one was hurt.
