AKRON, Ohio - Severe thunderstorm warnings lasted long enough in Summit County for hefty rain and whipping winds to batter Portage Lakes property.
Winds gusting upwards of 60 mph blew through Akron with a vengeance on Sunday afternoon. Residents who live around the East Reservoir of Portage Lakes saw their yards torn apart my Mother Nature.
In the YouTube video, Portage Lakes resident Sean Fremon captured the storm blowing away his lawn chairs, tossing his table umbrella and sending other items swirling in the air.
"It's been a long time since I've seen so much rain so fast," Fremon said. "Big wind and white caps."
The white caps made for a tricky trek upstream by a fisherman stuck in the torrential downpour, as his boat struggles to make it back to shore. (Mobile users click here to watch video: http://on.wews.com/NrOfdq)
No injuries or major damage was reported.
Akron wasn't the only area hit by the brief storms. Green was hit hard with hail, and Trumbull and Stark counties joined the severe thunderstorm warning list.
Most of the area is now rain free, with temperatures muggy in the mid-80s. Monday's forecast looks to be free of rain, with a mix of sun and clouds, and temperatures nearing 90.
