Scanner traffic in #Dayton is crazy busy right now. Getting calls for people who are trapped in their homes. Lots of damage.

To be clear - this does NOT mean any injuries or deaths are confirmed (although injuries ARE being reported). When this is declared it allows for more resources to be activated when the local authorities are overwhelmed (which they are).

28. We're ok. The tornados were about ten miles north of us.

Power flickered a few times, but it stayed on. No running water in Montgomery county. The pumps do not have power.

16. Tornado wreaks havoc on Dayton, Ohio, area.

The National Weather Service confirmed a "large and destructive" tornado near the Dayton suburb of Trotwood just after 11 p.m.


'A large and dangerous tornado raked across the Dayton, Ohio, area Monday night and several people had been reported injured. Extensive damage was reported in areas north of the city, and thousands of customers were without power, utilities reported.

The National Weather Service declared a tornado emergency for northern Montgomery County, urging residents to take cover in Englewood, Northview and surrounding areas. It confirmed a "large and dangerous" tornado on the ground near the Dayton suburb of Trotwood in Montgomery County just after 11 p.m.

Trotwood Mayor Mary McDonald told NBC affiliate WDTN of Dayton that several apartment complexes were being evacuated because of the potential of gas explosions. McDonald said on Facebook that power lines and trees were down across the city of 25,000 residents.

In Mercer County, at least seven people had been transported to hospitals for injuries sustained during the storm, according to county officials. They did not detail the extent of the injuries.

WDTN reported that many trees were down and that numerous homes had been damaged in and near the town of Celina, about 55 miles northwest of Dayton. It said the roof of Brookville High School in Montgomery County about 10 miles northwest of Dayton, appeared to have been seriously damaged.

WDTN aired video of downed trees, damaged homes and smashed cars in the suburb of Beavercrook.

The Ohio Department of Transportation was using snow plows to remove debris off a highway after the tornado hit the area late Monday.

Transportation spokesman Matt Bruning said its crews were using several plows to scrape debris off to the side of southbound Interstate 75, trying to get the highway reopened as soon as possible.

"We'll do a more thorough cleaning after we get lanes opened," he told the Associated Press via text early Tuesday. He said tow trucks eventually will have to deal with damaged vehicles along the roadway, too. He said other crews are also clearing debris northwest of Dayton in Mercer and Darke counties.

This is a developing story.'

18. Just got back from a quick jaunt to my old neighborhood.

Northwest Dayton, just into Harrison Twp. Parts of buildings, massive trees, light poles strewn across Needmore and North Riverside. Couldn't get close to the old hood and it's miles east of Trotwood. Tomorrow is going to be a sobering day.

Power went out at 11:11 here in Inner East and most of the city. Not expected to be restored until at least Wednesday night.

Scary trip. Glad to be home.

21. I am in Preble Co. but my cousin is a police dispatcher in Dayton. She said it's bad and that her

house is severely damaged. She said calls are pretty much constant to the station and now the water pump stations have lost power.
