A line of severe storms hit the Midwest Wednesday. North Central Ohio was affected by the storms.

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings just before midnight for several counties including Richland, Holmes and Crawford.The storms caused flooding and high water on the roadways throughout Richland County.

The railroad underpass at Ohio 309 and Park Ave. West in Ontario was closed due to high water. Ontario Police provided assistance to a motorist from Galion who attempted to drive through the water. "Apparently the driver was just coming from Walmart head back toward Galion and thought je could make it through the water and didn't," Ontario Police Department Lt. Tom Hill said. West Sixth Street in Mansfield also had high water from the storm.

There were reports of high water at the underpass of Park Avenue and Ashland Road and South Diamond Street. Golf-ball sized hail was reported in the village of Plymouth in Huron county and Richland County.
