Storm damage reported in Grove City, Ohio

GROVE CITY, OH (WCMH) — Heavy storm damage was reported in Grove City after this evening’s storm front moved through, triggering tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings across central Ohio.

Ted Hart took the photos below of damage along Hoover Road, near Hoover Crossing Way.

There is scattered debris all over the neighborhood from damaged trees and homes.

Elsewhere, neighbors were settling in for a night without electricity.

Those with generators, such as Debbie Lambright, say they are grateful.

“I didn’t even care about the heat,” she said. “I just didn’t want my basement flooded because I’ve had it flooded before.”

Many of the businesses along Stringtown Road, near I-71, were also left in the dark.

AEP has reported that it may be up to 36 hours before all electricity is restored.
