Southwest Ohio (WDTN) – Much of the Miami Valley is experienced storms Tuesday tonight.

Some areas have seen hail, heavy rain and booming thunder.

Severe weather warnings were issued around 4 p.m. for Warren and Clinton Counties until 4:30 p.m. The systems moving through, are capable of producing large hail and wind gusts up to 60 m.p.h.

Dime sized hail fell near Yellow Springs. No damage was reported.

A band, moving over parts of Butler county produced lots of lightning and thunder powerful enough to rattle homes, according to a Middletown resident.

“I’ve never seen thunder like this before. We’ve had storms but nothing like it was today. To shake the whole house,” said Gwen Ketchem.
