The National Weather Service confirmed on Monday that two tornadoes touched down near Toledo. There were no reports of significant injuries.

One of the tornadoes, with winds of 111-135 mph, brushed through suburbs south and east of Toledo. Winds from the storm crushed one of two drive-in movie screens in the suburb of Oregon. Several buildings in an industrial park also sustained damage just south of the city, and the winds flattened a gas station canopy.

Another tornado that touched down Sunday in Jerry City, near Bowling Green, had a preliminary rating of EF-1 with winds between 86-110 mph, the weather service said.
