WILMINGTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The storm warnings that were issued Tuesday have now expired but Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis says you may still see some high winds.
High winds may be to blame for an overturned semi in Preble County. The truck overturned around 3:00 pm on US-127 between US-40 and I-70, according to Preble County dispatchers.
The Preble County Sheriff’s Office said the Dispatch Center answered hundreds of calls reporting downed power lines across roadways.
Many of the county’s fire departments were out to assess damage and several roads were closed while DP&L responded.
The Sheriff asks everyone to be cautious while driving in case they happen upon more downed trees and power lines.
