In The Region:

Tornado warnings remain in effect for Northeast Ohio, though there are no reports of tornadoes actually touching down.

The fast-moving thunderstorms are focused now primarily on Wayne, Coshocton, Tuscarawas, Stark and southern Portage and Summit counties, and moving onto Mahoning.

Rich Weber of the Stark County Emergency Management Agency the storms are heading fast east and west.

“It appears to be north of North Canton, into southern Summit County and possibly into Portage County.  Also, in the west part of the county, between Massillon and Canal Fulton, there’s been a little bit of flooding as they’re letting some of the water go from the Nimisilla Reservoir.”

Weber  estimates the Tuscarawas River should be at about 11 feet by tomorrow.  Fourteen feet is considered flood stage.

Meanwhile, severe thunderstorm and flash-flood warnings are in effect for much of the region, and an RTA wall at Tower City in Cleveland has collapsed. Red line trains are delayed and the waterfront line is being replaced by shuttle buses. The storm also blew metal roofing off of Cleveland City Hall.
