South Salem, Ohio — Confirmed by National Weather Service Multiple tornadoes landed Early Saturday morning in part of Ohio.

Highland County was hit by EF0 and EF1.

The EF1 tornado also struck Pickaway County.

In Ross County, three tornadoes have occurred. Two EF0 storms and one EF2.

Two of them, including the EF2 tornado with a maximum wind speed of 115MPH, occurred near South Salem around 1:30 am.

“Maybe it took about 30 seconds, and it was about it, it’s over,” said Erica McNeil when she stood in the rubble of what was her barn.

“The wind was just crazy … it was just strong. It seemed like I didn’t have time to enter the basement,” she said. The tornado ruffled the side panels of the house, but completely destroyed her barn.

“It was Jim, my husband Jim. What’s left is definitely damaged, but better than our home I say,” McNeil said.

Work to clean the town has already begun with the help of extra hands.

“The entire community has come together,” said Paul Minnie, Head of the Ross County Emergency Management Agency.

He told 10TV that he and the other crew had arrived in town shortly after the tornado struck. Thankfully, no one was injured.

“This is the worst blow so far,” Minnie said standing in an area near South Salem.

“Some people have just been affected, others have been severely damaged. We’re probably talking for at least a week to complete all the cleanups,” Minney said.

The community does not allow what is taken in seconds, ruining the will to move forward.

“Now we understand this, but everyone is okay, so don’t worry,” McNeil said.
