“The damage does appear to be more than straight line winds when you look at the patterns,” said Scott Dorsten with the Beavercreek Twp. Fire Department.

Firefighters responded to the area of the 1000 block of Ludlow Road on a report of wires down, but soon discovered the additional damage.  The path of the damage spanned northeast, Dorsten said.

“They were called out initially on wires down,” Dorsten said. “We started noticing the other damage associated with this.”
