Trees and poles are still hanging on the lines in Lodi this morning, especially on Rt. 42 and Bank St. Debris is still on the roads. Power was still blinking all morning long. Unreal!

WOW.....they had that photo on the news and several people around the area took photos of this same storm system and cloud formation and submitted the photos to the news. I don't know about the rest of you, but I liked the hot dry weather we were having. This rain has gotten way too old already. Seems like the whole week has been nothing but rain.

We need these sirens, I was working in the house and had not seen the warnings/news cause good cartoons was on cable channel those channels do not post warnings. When it hit I was caught off guard....we need sirens. Wadsworth and other suburbs have them.

That was a scary drive home yesterday! I saw swirling clouds at Tallmadge and Route 8 and the weather reports sure didn't help calm me down any. It seemed like everyone on the roads were trying to take it easy and be careful, so that was a blessing. Got home to find no electricity and a bunch of tree limbs down, but not bad considering. Our electricity came back on about an hour ago.

Where can I find more pictures of the storm?

A tree fell on a pu truck and took down some wires on Manchester rd. Around the corner on Nimisila rd A large tree blocked the road. Numerous small trees and branches littered the roads from Center to Yeager rd. I saw what looked like a funnel cloud at 5:01

Bad storm

Interesting how they put the news about a horse dying ABOVE the news about a woman being killed. Nice editorial decision. Nice.

Manchester and Green got hammered. Probably 90% of the homes in my neighborhood have trees or limbs down. My power was out for 8 hours. One of my co-workers who lives in Manchester STILL is without power.

On the plus side - I'm thinking that we are no longer in a drought situation.

The last time I checked Lodi was about as far from the "Akron area" as Cleveland Ohio is, and it too, is in a different

Kudos to those who helped the Indoe family. Good people do good deeds. There are still people to be proud of.

I live in Green and the electric was out for 4 hours and then it went out for 1 minute this AM and I thought not again. We need sirens out here; they are way overdue!!! I was caught off guard too. My Weather Radio wore out.

God bless the poor lady that died on her way home and Indoe family and their neighbors who helped them.

It was nice to so many folks show up to help at the Indoe farm. Humanity shines at it's best when a tragedy strikes

I agree with you on that, but it is too bad it takes a tragedy to bring forth humanity.

It seems that way doesn't it. Fortunately, folks do get together to help other folks, outside of tragedies or to raise money to aid them at a later date.

But I think true compassion comes forth in a time of tragedy.
