In The Region:

A village in Northern Tuscarawas County has no fire station after it was destroyed by a tornado during yesterday’s storm.

Patty Levengood, the director of Tuscarawas County ‘s emergency management agency, says losing the brick fire station will be a big blow to the village of Mineral City, but there is a silver lining.

"There were firemen and women in the facility when the tornado did strike, so we’re very lucky that nobody was injured or killed," Levengood says. "So even though the building is pretty much a total loss, they still have their man power and they still have some of their equipment that they can use to respond to calls."

The tornado was confirmed by the National Weather Service. No word yet on how powerful it was.

More than a third of Tuscarawas County businesses and households lost electricity during the storm and more than 10,000 remain without power.
