GROVE CITY, Ohio — Authorities have been rescuing people from their homes and cars who've been stranded by flooding in western and central Ohio in the aftermath of three tornadoes.
Firefighters in Fairfield County near Lancaster shuttled out at least a dozen people early Wednesday after neighborhoods were surrounded by several feet of water.
In the Springfield area, crews rescued a woman trapped in her car by high water and a man who came to help after she drove around a road closed sign.
The flooding follows strong winds that knocked down utility poles and wires and damaged buildings Tuesday.
