* at 148 pm edt...National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
    
slow moving thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall across the
    
warned area. One to two inches of rain has already fallen in
    
eastern Sandusky and western Erie counties. Additional storms
    
moving in will likely bring an additional one to two inches.
    
Rainfall rates are more than two inches per hour and can easily
    
overwhelm drainage systems. Already saturated soil will lead to
    
excessive runoff quickly.

 

We are checking into damage reports.  Henry Co. Sheriff's report a tree fell on a Napoleon house on the 700th block of Beckham.
