The Wilmington, Ohio branch of the NWS confirms an EF0 tornado occurred around 3:40 p.m. in Owen County near New Columbus. The tornado's path was 3.5 miles with winds up to 80 miles per hour.

Straight-line winds with speeds up to 70 miles per hour were confirmed in Mason County, according to the NWS. 13 fuel pumps at a Maysville AA Highway gas station were completely ripped from their foundation. In a lot next door, semi-trailers were blown over from the winds.

Cleanup is still underway and there were no injuries in either county as a result of the storms.

“Just the fact that no one was hurt here means a great deal," said Maysville Mayor David Cartmell on the day of the storms.
