DAYTON, OHIO (WBRE/WYOU) – A severe storm system ripped across western Ohio Monday night leaving at least one person dead and at least 12 injured.

Mayor Jeffrey Hazel of Celina, Ohio said early Tuesday morning that 81 year old Melvin Delhanna was killed when the strom pushed a vehicle into his home.

About 68,000 households and businesses across the region were without power, and in Dayton a boil water advisory was issued after a power outage impacted both water plants and pump stations.

In Trotwood, a Montgomery County community near Dayton, power lines and trees were down across the city of 25,000.

A total of 36 tornado warnings were issued by the National Weather Service overnight Monday across the region.

The Ohio Department of Transportation also used snow plows to remove debris from Interstate 75.

Nexstar Media Group, which owns WDTN in Dayton, is using the reach of its nationwide sister television stations to help the American Red Cross assist those impacted by the disaster.
