Dayton, Ohio tornadoes cause severe weather damage and no fatalities

DAYTON, Oh. — Authorities in Dayton, Ohio, say that a series of apparent tornadoes caused a few minor injuries but no reported fatalities within the city.
Residents say sirens started going off around 10:30 p.m. Monday, May 27,  ahead of the storm.
Fire Chief Jeffrey Payne of Dayton called the report of no fatalities pretty miraculous during a Tuesday, May 28, morning briefing.
The storms caused severe damage in communities northwest of Dayton, including in Celina, Ohio where  Mayor Jeffery Hazel was out in the middle of the night helping others get to safety.
I’ve been very proud of Celina, I’ve been contacted multiple times by people through text and phone call saying ‘hey can I help’ That’s what you have in Celina, it’s a very strong community.
Dayton City manager, Shelley Dickstein, says a boil advisory has been issued for residents after the storms cut power to Dayton’s pump stations and generators are being rushed in.
Dayton mayor, Nan Whaley, urged residents to check on neighbors, especially those who are housebound.
