It was a stormy and windy end to the weekend in southeast Ohio. Sunday severe thunderstorms and high winds swept through parts of our area. Perry county felt the wrath of the spring storms. Residents in the village of Moxahala experienced flooded creeks and yards. Sunday afternoon's high winds were destructive as they blew over trees and other objects like a satellite dish. Other communities in the area suffered from the storms like downtown Crooksville where a creek nearly doubled in size. There were also reports of golf ball sized hail throughout the area. Officials in Zanesville reported some minor damage and scattered power outages. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service will travel to Canton Monday to determine if a tornado passed through the area Sunday. Some serious damage was reported in that area.
