TOLEDO, Ohio (13abc Action News) – Sunday's storms left lots of damage behind across the area. The National Weather Service says Doppler radar shows evidence that tornadoes touched down in Seneca, Sandusky, Erie, and Huron Counties.

The Weather Service is planning on investigating the left over rubble in this area to determine if the damage was created by tornadoes or straight line winds. The survey team will also determine how strong the winds were on Sunday.

There were two distinct areas of rotation that moved over this area. The first took place in northern Sandusky County and moved into Erie County between 2:30pm to 3:10pm. The second area of rotation developed in eastern Seneca County and moved east towards the Norwalk area between 5:00pm to 5:30pm on Sunday.

The National Weather Service will also do a storm survey in Findlay to determine what caused the damage. Whether the storms created straight line winds or a tornado, the damage is significant in Hancock County.

The National Weather Service also believes straight line winds created the heavy damage in Williams, Henry, and Fulton Counties.
