Strong winds rip porch roof off house in Lorain

LORAIN, Ohio - A line of strong storms that swept through northeastern Ohio Sunday night ripped the roof off a porch in Lorain.

It happened around 7:46 p.m. in the 4200 block of Tacoma Avenue.

The resident of the home told NewsChannel5 that he was in the house washing dishes when he heard a strong gust of winds. The resident said he went outside to find his porch roof on the ground.

It also appears the roof struck the side of the man's house, tearing off the power line box that was attached to his home.

No one was hurt.
