STORMS CAUSE MINOR DAMAGE, POWER OUTAGES

(Whitewater Valley)--There were a few reports of minor storm damage Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.  Storms caused a transformer to blow on Richmond’s west side and may have contributed to a minor house fire on College Corner Road.  Power was out to several homes in that area.  About 700 homes were in the dark in Preble County.  That was restored at around 3 o’clock Thursday morning.  Weather sirens sounded in Wayne County yesterday, but that was part of routine monthly testing.
