The tornado in Point Place was one of several that were reported in northwest Ohio on Thursday evening, as a severe thunderstorm brought hail and strong winds to the area. The tornado caused extensive damage, including uprooted trees and major roof damage.
The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings for the northeast part of Lucas County, Monroe County, Erie County, Ottawa County, Sandusky County, Seneca County and Huron County as the storm moved through the area around 6 p.m.
Officials warned residents in the impacted areas of north Toledo to stay inside their homes even after the storm passed. The storm knocked down power lines and may have caused gas leaks, officials said.
Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz said on Thursday that he thinks this was the first tornado to hit the city since 1965.
