Possible tornado hits Willshire

Posted: Updated:

It appears a small tornado touched down in the Van Wert county village of Willshire when storms moved through the area Wednesday night.

Fortunately no one was hurt.

Green street seemed to be the hardest hit section of Willshire.

Brent Whitaker was actually outside when what is believed to be an F-1 tornado struck the village.

He said the wind knocked him to the ground.

It also knocked his garage down.

Van Wert County Emergency Management Agency Director Rick McCoy says the damage was limited to about a three block area on the south side of the village.

McCoy was expected to meet with the National Weather Service to talk about the damage and whether it was from a tornado or straight line winds.
