Suspected Ohio Tornado Tears Roof Off Farm House

ORRVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say severe storms spawned a suspected tornado in rural northeast Ohio that tore part of the roof off a house and snapped off trees.
   
The twister peeled the roof off of the house in the Wayne County village of Orrville, southwest of Akron, as storms moved through Wednesday afternoon. It sent part of the roof into a field 75 yards away. Nobody was hurt.
   
In a small corn field across the street, the storm cut a swath about 40 yards wide before snapping off a row of trees about halfway up.
   
Les Durstine, chief of the Apple Creek-East Union Township Fire Department, tells the Akron Beacon Journal that the tornado hit at about 3 p.m. and traveled about 200 feet on the ground.
