Tornado outbreak leaves heavy damage across Montgomery County

MIAMI VALLEY, Ohio (WDTN) - Reports of damage are coming in from across the region due to Monday's severe weather.

A home in Dayton was damaged by the storms when debris fell into it. In the video, you can hear a woman say "our house is gone."

Sheriff Rob Streck tells 2 NEWS that they have gotten reports of roofs that have flown off houses, houses that are half-collapsed, and trees down.

He says that the Brookville, Harrison Township, and Trotwood areas seem to have been hit the hardest.

The Sheriff says that due to an overwhelming number of calls, the public should not call 911 unless something is sparking or someone is injured or in immediate danger.

Crews are mainly focused on making sure people stay safe and are trying to clear roadways as quickly as possible.

The Sheriff is asking everyone to stay off the roadways in Montgomery County.

2 NEWS Reporter Adam Rife is on I-75 in the Northridge area, where I-75 southbound is completely blocked off. Traffic is being rerouted down to Wagner Ford from the southbound lanes.

A tow truck is working to clear disabled vehicles from the area. The process is slow going, as the cars have to be moved one at a time.

Snow plows are out at the scene helping to push cars out of the way.

In Trotwood, the Mayor says extensive damage has been reported throughout the city. A command center has been set up at Fire Station 72.

There are several downed power lines and downed trees in the area. If you encounter any downed power lines, you are asked not to drive over them or interact with them in any way.
