Strong winds and heavy rains pounded Xenia, Ohio, on Tuesday, April 3. The area was under a tornado warning on Tuesday, but the National Weather Service has not confirmed if a tornado touched down. WHIO referred to the storm system as a line of “tornadic storms,” reporting trees were down and property was damaged across several counties in south-central Ohio. A second round of storms was forecasted to hit later Tuesday night. This video was taken from a home in Xenia, showing patio furniture being lifted and flung during the wind storm. April 3 marked the 44-year anniversary of one of the deadliest tornado’s in Ohio history. In 1974, an F5 tornado hit Xenia, destroying hundreds of buildings and leaving more than 1,000 residents injured. The tornado was part of a major two-day outbreak that saw 30 twisters of at least an F4 rating. Thirty-five people died as a result of the 1974 Xenia tornado. Credit: Dylan Dice via Storyful
