An unusual tornado touched down in northeastern Ohio on Tuesday morning as severe thunderstorms rumbled across the region.

It is very uncommon for tornadoes to occur in this part of country during January. Only six tornadoes have been reported in January across Ohio between 1950 and 2018.

The tornado was reported near Mosquito Lake, Ohio, around 10:30 a.m. EST and was later confirmed by the National Weather Service to be an EF1 tornado. No one was injured, but winds up to 100 mph damaged a building and knocked down numerous trees.

Another round of severe thunderstorms erupted over Ohio and Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon with gusty winds and hail larger than pennies.

Strong thunderstorms will continue across Ohio and western Pennsylvania into early Tuesday night ahead of the next blast of cold and windy weather.
