Up to 30 vehicles were damaged and a dozen destroyed as a tornado touched down in Beavercreek Tuesday.
Alex York, who saw the storm, said cars were “in the air.”
People were still in two of the vehicles; one man’s pickup truck was picked up and thrown into a building. York said he saw a woman’s car get dragged over from a nearby Waffle House.
“Her legs were completely bloodied,” he said. “We handled everything just fine. We sat her down, we didn’t move anything.”
Two people were injured and taken to hospitals.
Beavercreek Police Captain Eric Grile said this is the worst storm he’s seen in 23 years.
“One of the statements I heard from the gentleman in the blue car was he looked down on the tops of the trees,” Grile said.
The storm continued northeast into a residential area, where roofs were ripped open and trees pulled down on cars. About 30 homes were damaged.
The National Weather Service has confirmed it was an EF1 tornado.
