The National Weather Service says a strong cold front will slam into Southwest Ohio overnight, bringing a line of thunderstorms expected to cause damaging winds, and possibly tornadoes. The storms were expected to hit sometime after 1:00am, according to a briefing from the weather service office in Wilmington. The damaging wind impact is expected to be significant. Duke Energy spokesperson Sally Thelen tweeted that sustained winds after the storm blows through may hinder restoration efforts. Since the storms will take place at night, you should have a weather radio to alert you.
