Storm downs trees, power lines

A severe thunderstorm moved through the area Wednesday evening, causing damage in Tiffin and Seneca County.

A dispatcher from the Tiffin Police Department said Wednesday night the station had handled several calls of branches and trees in roadways as a result of the storm.

On South Washington Street, between Circular and Hedges streets, four power poles broke and lines and trees were in the roadway, the dispatcher said. Power was out in that area as a result.

As of 10 p.m. Wednesday, the roadway still was blocked, the dispatcher said.

The dispatcher said power outages also were reported on Miami and Penn streets. At 112 Liberty St., a tree had fallen on a house. On Greenfield Court, a person reported a trampoline was on a vehicle.

The dispatcher said no other structural damage from the storm had been reported.

Trees and power lines also were down around the county following the storm, a Seneca County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher said.

Trees or power lines were reported down on CR 26, CR 15, TR 122, CR 62 and CR 12, the dispatcher said, and power was out temporarily on TR 122.

No other major outages were reported.

The dispatcher said no structural damage was reported as a result of the storm.

At midnight, CR 62 between SR 635 and TR 71A was closed due to downed power lines, according to a sheriff’s office dispatcher.

AEP’s website was reporting that power had been restored to all of its customers in Seneca County as of midnight.
