WILLIAMSFIELD, Ohio – The National Weather Service has confirmed that two more tornadoes touched down when Sunday’s severe weather swept through Ohio.
An EF-2 tornado touched down in Williamsfield and another in Andover, according to the NWS. The tornadoes were upgraded after additional damage surveys.
The nearly two dozen homeowners living on Route 322 in Williamsfield started the long process of rebuilding their lives Tuesday.
“It’s not going to be quick, that’s for sure,” said John Sisley, as he walked through the debris on his kitchen floor. “But this is our home. This is where we want to live and we will get through this.”
About 20 homes on the street were severely damaged when a tornado ripped through the area Sunday night.
The Fullers who live across the street from Sisley are fixing their roof and repairing other damage that happened during the storm.
“I still can’t believe how much damage was done so quickly,” said Jackie Fuller.
Dozens of utility trucks lined the street as crews put up new poles.
Residents are hoping to get power restored by the end of the week.
“I love this community,” Sisley said. “We are in this together. We are all helping each other and we will rebuild and be just fine.”
