LOVELAND, OH (July 8, 2022) – A tornado and severe storms did heavy damage to buildings, trees, and caused loss of electricity to thousands in the communities of Loveland-Miami Twp., Goshen and Milford area Wednesday afternoon July 6.

Tree service crews responded immediately Wednesday in efforts to remove tree limbs from damaged homes and secure a safe environment for residents. Crews continued arriving throughout the day Thursday working to remove threatening tree limbs throughout the hard-hit Paxton Woods community. If that wasn’t enough, residents were also left without electricity for nearly 48 hours from approximately 3 p.m. when the storm struck Wednesday, July 6, until Duke Energy crews were able to restore service in the area at approximately 10:45 a.m. Friday morning July 8. Clean-up continues today. 

As a resident of the area, I walked through as families, neighbors and tree crews worked diligently to remove debris, secure safe-haven for residents and help in the recovery from the damaging effects of the Wedenes day storm.

Here is an array of photos from within Weber Oaks, Mitchell Farm, and mostly from Paxton Woods, along with Paxton South and Paxton Lake communities.
