Earlier this afternoon, these storms caused power outages in Huron County thanks to wind gusts of up to 70 mph near Wakeman as they moved through.

Power poles were reported down in Sandusky, just southwest of Amherst and in Norwalk. Winds gusted to 70 mph in Wakeman at 3:41 p.m.

In Lorain County, trees were also reported down west of Elyria shortly before 4 p.m.

Around 5 p.m., trees were felled near Shreve in Wayne County and Millerburg in Holmes County.

FirstEnergy reports about 2,700 customers were affected in Huron County with limited outages scattered throughout the rest of the area as the storms moved through.

Richland County had about 2,000 customers without power, while Cuyahoga County had about 1,200 still in the dark just before 7 p.m.

Skies will calm this evening. We are still watching a line of storms moving through Michigan and it remains to be seen if the storms will hold together long enough to reach northern Ohio.

Any warnings will appear on the red bar at the top of wkyc.com
