Heavy damage -- including siding ripped off a home in Clark County to a tree uprooted by what one woman in Dayton claims was a tornado -- was reported from heavy storms that hit the Miami Valley late Wednesday afternoon and evening.

There were no injuries reported from any of the damage.

“I stepped out on the porch and my son started screaming ‘take cover take cover!’ Jeanine Roberts told News Center 7’s Kate Bartley. “When I was standing on the front porch, I saw the twister coming down the street and you could see it throwing debris.”

She said a large pine tree -- she estimates it to have been 40 feet tall -- was uprooted and deposited in her yard on Virginia Avenue in Dayton.

“It’s just the hand of God that it didn’t” hit the house, Roberts said. “It could have fallen any other way, but it didn’t. It fell just the right way, so everybody’s safe.”

The tree -- or what’s left of it -- belongs to Bridget Bussell.

“I just heard this loud noise and I ran downstairs and my tree had fallen over,” she said.

“We have tons of birds and tons of squirrels and tons of cats that hang out under it. It’s just always been part of our yard, so it’s kind of sad to see it go.”
