— Severe weather Wednesday night brought multiple tornado touchdowns throughout the Miami Valley.
The National Weather Service said it’s believed a tornado or multiple tornadoes were responsible for the damage.
One tornado was reported in the area of U.S. 35 at the split with the U.S. 35 Business Route in Xenia. Another tornado was reported about four miles west of New Carlisle.
Widespread damage was reported in Park Layne, where the Sunoco, McDonald’s, Victory Motors and other businesses were damaged.

“I got there slightly before the emergency response team,” said Brady Smith, who said he could smell exposed gasoline at the Sunoco. He reported damage at several businesses.
“This is likely a very strong tornado on the ground,” Elwell said. “We’ve had a very dangerous weather situation.”
Three-thousand people were locked down during the Xenia High School graduation ceremony at the Nutter Center at Wright State University, reported NewsCenter 7’s Caroline Reinwald.
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base security forces were checking late Wednesday to see if damage was caused by storms over the base.
“At this time, we do not know if a tornado touched down or not” on the base, spokeswoman Marie Vanover said late Wednesday night.
Wright-Patterson weathercasters issued a tornado warning at 8:33 p.m. The warning was extended at 9:15 p.m. and again at 9:35 p.m.
