DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio — The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado briefly touched down Monday evening in Delaware County.

The NWS said the tornado touched down four miles east of Delaware at 5:14 p.m. and lifted four-and-a-half miles northwest of Sunbury at 5:17 p.m.

The tornado is believed to have started in a field west of Jumper Road.

The tornado was rated as an EF0, with maximum winds of 80 mph.

Trees and large limbs were knocked down and a roof was partially lifted off a home.

The tornado likely went across Alum Creek, causing damage along 3 Bs and K Road before lifting.

Storm damage was also observed around Lewis Center in Delaware County and in the Marysville area of Union County, but those were the results of straight-line winds, according to the National Weather Service.

There were no reports of injuries from the tornado.
