The News 5 team is traveling all over the area to find the worst hit areas.

In Twinsburg, a stop sign snapped off its post and siding on several homes was ripped off.

In Macedonia, power lines and poles were down along with uprooted trees found on the ground.

It's not uncommon for the active severe weather in Ohio to occur during the month of November. Since 2000, there have been a few active years with 2002 and 2013 being the most active.

Fallen trees and power lines caused roads to close across the area. Find the updated list of road closures and delays on the News 5 traffic page.
