There is severe damage in several Clark County towns, most significantly in Chili, where one home and several barns were destroyed, and two people received minor injuries. Those two people did not seek immediate treatment.

In Wood County, Sheriff's Deputies reported seeing possible tornado touch downs near Marshfield, but so far there are no reports of damage there.

Residents say a storm that looked like a tornado destroyed a home on Catlin Road in Chili Tuesday night, while a father and son were inside. The two made it out safely, but most of their belongings did not. Now, their friends and family are helping pick up the pieces.

Firefighters and first responders were quickly dispatched to help clear debris.

"Go around get trees off the road keep traffic moving and stuff just make sure power lines aren't down on the roads and stuff," says Toby Watson, town of Fremont firefighter.

And family of those who lost their home are spending the night searching the yard, to preserve what memories they can.

"We're here looking for pictures stuff like that, we were looking for a wedding dress," says Dennis Hannan, brother in law of the home-owners, "We're lucky nobody got hurt everything else can be replaced."

Emergency management says they'll be surveying corn and alfalfa crops tomorrow to assess the damage.
