EMA Director Bo Keck said the sheriff’s office received multiple calls reporting a tornado at Old Riley Road and State Route 16 around 3:00 p.m. The tornado knocked a large branch onto a home at 4940 Short Road near Frazeysburg. It also knocked out a window in the rear of the house. Residents of the home said the twister came through a corn field behind their property, laying over many of the crops, before touching down at their property.
