CINCINNATI -- The National Weather Service issued multiple severe storm warnings as a strong weather system moved through the Tri-State Wednesday evening.
The heaviest lines of storms began moving through Northern Kentucky around 8 p.m., when the NWS issued a Tornado Warning affecting southern Campbell, southern Kenton, northeast Pendleton and northeast Grant counties. That warning was lifted between 8:30-8:45 p.m.
These storms began to lose strength as they tracked into southwest Ohio's Clermont, Brown and Adams counties. The Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were lifted in this area just before 9 p.m.
That weather event saw winds with speeds between 50-60 mph and damage was reported across the area, particularly in Northern Kentucky. In Pendleton County, emergency crews responded to the scene where a mobile home blew over a hillside.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect for Adams and Brown counties in Ohio, and Mason County in Kentucky, until 11 p.m.
Watch and Warning definitions:
A Tornado Watch is issued to alert people to the possibility of a tornado developing in your area. At this point, a tornado has not been seen but the conditions are very favorable for tornados to occur at any moment.
A Tornado Warning is issued when a tornado has actually been sighted or has been picked up on radar in your area. This means that you need to take shelter immediately in a safe sturdy structure.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means the potential exists for the development of thunderstorms that may produce large hail or damaging winds.
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning means a severe thunderstorm is occurring or is imminent based on radar information. You should immediately move indoors to a place of safety.
