DORSET, Ohio-- Wednesday morning's storms damaged a church in Ashtabula County.

The Andover Volunteer Fire Department responded to the Dorset Baptist Church, located on state Route 193. It appears the church steeple was hit by lightning.

The church is covered by insurance and parishioners plan to rebuild right away. Meanwhile, a nearby church offered to open its doors to the Dorest Baptist congregation until repairs are made.

High winds also took the roof off of Red, Wine and Brew in Chestland and left thousands in the dark.
