#1 As of five minutes ago, no deaths reported according to Cincinnati local news. It passed well north of Cincinnati.

Prayers for those it touched — we’ll know more after the sun comes up.

#9 From the Cincinnati link in my early morning comment, which was updated 40 minutes ago:

Governor Mike DeWine declared a state of emergency for the three affected counties [Greene, Mercer and Montgomery], allowing them access to disaster relief funding and personnel from the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. President Donald Trump tweeted his well-wishes late Tuesday afternoon.

One person, 81-year-old Melvin Dale Hannah, died when a tornado flung a parked car through the walls of his Celina home. Hundreds more were injured.

The cities of Celina, Circleville and Trotwood — about 70, 76 and 10 miles from Dayton, respectively — were among the hardest-hit.

The response would require a "multi-day restoration effort," Dayton Power & Light said in an early morning tweet. At about 12:15 p.m. the company said 70,000 customers have been impacted, and 360 out-of-state crew members were coming to the area to assist.

The city of Dayton urged residents to conserve water after the storms cut power to water plants and pump stations, and issued a boil advisory for all Dayton and Montgomery County water customers. This does not impact jurisdictions with separate systems, said Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein.


On Facebook I saw that Dayton-area friends are posting that they are available to help with the clean up, they just need to be pointed at those in need. So people aren’t waiting for the professionals to handle things for them.
