New damage surveys completed today by the National Weather Service has brought the statewide tornado touchdown count to 17 from Sunday’s storms.
There were still just the three touchdowns in the Miami Valley with the rest across northern Ohio and one in far eastern Ohio.
The average number of tornadoes annually in Ohio is 19 (1991-2010)
There were 13 tornado touchdowns in Ohio on Sunday, according to a scan of National Weather Service data from five weather service offices.
Those offices are in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Charleston, West Va.,; Fort Wayne, Ind., and Wilmington.
It is important to note that the data makes reference to touchdowns. Some of the reported touchdowns may have come from the same tornado, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said Monday night.
