Line of Strong Sunday Storms Prompted Tornado Warning


A line of strong storms moved through the Ohio Valley on Sunday afternoon, prompting a tornado warning for about a half hour.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for parts of Belmont, Jefferson, Ohio and Brooke Counties after rotation was spotted near St. Clairsville.

Thunderstorms continued to move through after the warning expired at 2:30, and some garden variety showers and storms were expected late Sunday afternoon into the evening, according to Chief Meteorologist Dr. Dave Walker. 

One caller into the 7Newsroom said the roof of her Powhatan Point home was damaged in the storms. Trees were reportedly down in St. Clairsville, as well.
