Forecasters say dry weather is on the way, a welcome relief from the heavy rains that have pounded Ohio this week.

High winds ripped roofs off buildings and downed trees and power lines Wednesday as a line of severe storms swept through the state.

In eastern Ohio, officials say the building that housed the Mineral City Fire Department in Tuscarawas County was destroyed.

In downtown Cleveland, authorities say a small section of roofing blew off City Hall.

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport reported flight delays, but no damage to aircraft.

In northwest Ohio, officials say a cargo train derailment may have been weather-related.

Officials say the storms left tens of thousands of homes of businesses without power and caused some flash flooding concerns across the state.

Some minor injuries were reported.
