Multiple Tornadoes Touch Down In Area Of Dayton

The storms brought catastrophic damage

Several tornadoes touched down in highly populated areas around Dayton, Ohio, and surrounding communities late Monday night, causing catastrophic damage. The city is currently under a boil-water advisory. And while the storms devastated dozens of buildings and trees, only minor injuries have been reported, officials said Tuesday morning.

"Last night about 11:30, tornadoes struck the Dayton area," Dayton Fire Chief Jeffrey Payne said. "However, we have yet to find one fatality, and we have had three minor injuries. I find that pretty miraculous."

Officials in Dayton, Celina and nearby communities are still searching for potential victims, after intense storms wreaked havoc. Suspected tornadoes also left behind destruction in the Indiana town of Pendleton, about 100 miles west of Dayton.
