One of the twisters reportedly hit a home at 7741 Ida-Center Rd., causing severe damage to the house and flipping over a car, authorities said. No injuries were reported.

In Toledo, remnants of the northern storms resulted in loud and strong thunderstorms that swept across northwest Ohio Thursday night. The city did tie a record high Thursday for March 15 when temperatures hit 78 degrees, a record first set in 1990.

The unusually warm temperatures that have remained in the upper-60s and 70s and started last weekend, are predicted to continue throughout the month.
