In Ottawa County - Allen Twp. bears brunt of tornado’s destruction

For Gary Baker and his family, a camping outing in Williams County was cut short by the storm systems that spawned the tornadoes that struck Ohio and Michigan.

They raced home to Williston from a Nettle Lake campground just minutes ahead of the storm.

“The sky looked really ominous behind us,” he said. “We got on the turnpike and we were only ahead of it by 10 minutes or so.”

Only five minutes passed after they pulled into their Toledo Street home and the emergency sirens sounded, he said.

The storm flooded Baker’s yard but his home didn’t suffer structural damage.

“We were lucky,” he said. “There was quite a bit of damage in Ottawa County.”

A team of meteorologists from the National Weather Service conducted an extensive survey of the tornado’s path in Wood and Ottawa counties and determined it reached an intensity of 4 on the Enhanced Fujita scale, indicating wind speeds reached 170-175 miles per hour.

The most extensive damage occurred in two spots: at State Route 795 near Lake High School and on the northwest side of the Village of Millbury.

 
Oregon - Council looks at sidewalk, street improvements

Oregon City Council will consider submitting an application to the Ohio Department of Development for a $75,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for sidewalk and street improvements.

City Council at a committee of the whole meeting last Monday agreed to place the resolution on the following Monday’s council meeting agenda.

The funds would be used to complete the third phase of improvements within the Pickle Road area. Paving replacement on Pickle Road would connect improvements made through the Wheeling Street widening project and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Pickle Road overpass project.

The funds would also be used for sidewalk improvements on Munding and Isaac streets. The improvements would provide a continuous pedestrian route, connecting improvements made through the Wheeling Street widening project and the fiscal year 2009 CDBG Pickle Road Phase 2 sidewalk project.

Council member Sandy Bihn said she has received an increasing number of inquiries from the public regarding safety issues from a lack of sidewalks from Coy Road to the area near Wal-Mart on State Route 2.
