WILLIAMSFIELD, Ohio -- Close to two dozen homes in this small township in Ashtabula County were severely damaged by Sunday's storms.

"My kitchen, dining room, and laundry room are trashed," said John Sisley, of Williamsfield.  "The storm blew right through my house."

He said his son's home across the street also  was damaged along with about 18 other houses.

"The trees are all twisted and part of a roof is in one tree," Sisley said.

He said officials with the Red Cross and National Weather Service are also expected in the area as well.

So far no injuries have been reported.
