Severe storms and at least one tornado hit Northwest Ohio on Sunday, leading to destruction of buildings and causing injuries to many people, reports said.

At least eight people were injured in Celina, a city in and the county seat of Mercer County. The county's Emergency Medical Assistant (EMA) said eight people suffered non life-threatening injuries in connection with the storms.

Out of them, six people were in a restaurant on Havemann Road; one injured person was at another business on the same road and the eighth person was injured when a power pole fell down, WRGT, a Fox-affiliate, reported.

The National Weather Service (NWS) confirmed that it was an EF1 tornado that measured approximately 200 yards wide, reports said.

The building of Crown Equipment Corporation — a global manufacturer of material handling lift trucks and technology — in Celina sustained some damage due to the storms.

Schools in Celina will be shut Monday due to severe storms in the area.

The storms that also swept through Northeast Ohio on Sunday resulted in outages for thousands of residents who were left in the dark. 

Broadview Heights, North Royalton, Solon and Strongsville in the Cuyahoga County were particularly hard hit by power loss, Fox8 Cleveland reported.

In other counties of the state such as Summit, Medina, Lorain, Geauga, thousands of residents are without power, the report said.

Several journalists and others were quick enough to post videos and images of the destruction caused by the storms in Ohio.

There was also a confirmed tornado touchdown in Jay County, Indiana, which is located just west of Mercer County. A tornado watch remained in effect for most part of the Miami Valley. 

The twister damaged a building and scattered debris across fields, the Weather Channel reported, citing the NWS. A roof was also torn off of a barn.

Emergency officials in the county reported a natural gas substation near Portland, Indiana, being damaged. Crews rushed to the site to check whether there were any leaks. The Sheriff's Department also said several homes were destroyed. 

Flooding was also reported in North Webster, Indiana, caused by heavy rainfall. 

Findlay, a city in and the county seat of Hancock County, also suffered the wrath of nature as a Ralphies restaurant was damaged. The mayor of Findlay posted a message on social media that the "north side of ...Findlay experienced significant damage during the storm."

Schools in the city will be shut due to scattered debris, 13ABC reported.

Parts of Wauseon — a city in and the county seat of Fulton County — were destroyed due to downed tree limbs and power lines. The city police requested residents to remain indoors. In a social media statement, they said that "Public Works, Toledo Edison and our department are working very hard in getting the trees, limbs and power lines off the road. Please stay off the streets. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. Stay Safe Wauseon," according to 13ABC.
