Officials say it's lucky no one was injured in a now confirmed tornado that struck Sunday evening in Ashtabula County, in Ohio's far northeast corner.

The National Weather Service said Monday that the storm that tore down trees and limbs and left homes in Conneaut  with roof damage was indeed a tornado, with winds somewhere in a range of 86-110 mph.  

The weather service says one garage roof was completely pulled off by the winds. City public safety director Jon Arcaro in Conneaut says a preliminary survey of the affected neighborhoods found at least 32 homes with some damage.

Arcaro said at a news conference Monday that so many trees were toppled that it's very fortunate no one was hurt.
