Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine declared a state of emergency Wednesday in Brown and Clermont counties following tornadoes and other storms that pummeled the area last week.
The Ohio Department of Transportation has been called to provide assistance to the communities, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

DeWine declared the state of emergency due to damaging conditions that resulted in power outages and damage to homes and businesses, the release states.
Though the storms caused damage in those two counties, Goshen Township was hit the worst. The EF2 twister was at its strongest when it hit that area.
The Goshen Fire Department took a “direct hit,” township officials said, and a number of homes and businesses were destroyed or severely damaged by the storm.
DeWine’s office has not released any more information about disaster funds or which municipalities and townships will receive them.
