Are you in the Dayton area?

Scary. I lived in Cincinnati for 10 years, and don't even recall much in the way of warnings.

13. Portman is already here.

Most of the areas hit are Democratic with some Republican. Rescue teams from all over are here. Cincinnati , Indiana.

Is that the only thought you have for people who have lost everything?

8. Good local coverage found here........

Lots of articles, photos and aerial videos here:

(Snips)
Tornadoes were reported in Darke, Mercer, Miami and Montgomery counties, according to weather radio spotters.

Ohio Task Force One has mobilized a search and rescue team in Montgomery County. Local hospitals said they are treating injuries, but exact numbers were not available early Tuesday morning.

Widespread damage has been reported in the Miami Valley. Schools, homes and businesses have been damaged or destroyed. Tens of thousands are without power, emergency shelters have been opened and Montgomery County residents are being asked to conserve water.

Search and rescue is on-going and will take considerable time. Lots of folks will be homeless tonight and we wish them luck on finding shelter.

14. My small Church

Has been on the phone all morning telling people to call if they need help.

About an hour ago their phone line went out, so they used the cell phone or email.

20. Same system went through here and oklahoma..We got


flooding and they had deaths. After the storm passes, it is easy
to forget that the next state over is going to get clobbered...

Here the forecasters are pretty awesome..Live and with trained spotters
out sending pics and videos, I don't see any reasons why people can't
seek shelter or move away from high water...Ya know, making plans
ahead of time if you can...

21. All the local news has been on since

Early last evening. Tornado warnings all over. It would be impossible not to know what is coming. I do think this saved lives.

Problem is they skip jump, turn around as this one did last night. They actually had snow plows out on I 75 last night clearing debris.

23. I once lived in a neighborhood very near area the reporter's location

Many of the homes in the area do have basements; despite that, I've always been terrified of something like this occurring. In addition to so much damage to the homes, it's such a shame that the mature landscaping and large shade trees were broken off short. So much work to do... Thank heaven there were no fatalities and timely warnings about the incoming storms. A friend toured and sent me a video of the destruction in the old stamping grounds. I can't imagine and am still in shock.

24. Problem in Trotwood is so many of the houses were very old

I live close to I 70. We were spared but water went off last night. It is great how all the Churches, fire stations, police and organizations are working together.

The tornadoes,hopped,skipped all over the place. They used snow plows to get the debris off I 75.

22. National Guard has been deployed, per WP.

Authorities announced early Tuesday that the National Guard was being deployed to the area. The Ohio Department of Transportation said crews were using snowplows to help clean up debris that was covering Interstate 75 north of downtown Dayton. Although there were no remaining tornado warnings, there were active flood warnings until early Tuesday.
