CLEVELAND — While strong winds from Sunday's storms have winded down, the effects of the severe weather are still being felt across NE Ohio on Monday morning.

Downed wires, fallen signs and broken utility poles were some of the remnants of Sunday’s storm.

Wicked winds shredded the "Welcome to Cleveland" sign on Ontario Street in Cleveland.

The last time Cleveland had wind gusts over 71mph was with the remnants of Hurricane Ike on Sept 14, 2008. Northeast Ohio had stronger winds on Sunday than during the remnants of Hurricane Sandy when winds gusts were 68 mph.

Power of 5 meteorologist Trent Magill released a list of Sunday's wind gusts by city.

VanCuren tree removal crews arrived on West 116th Street where a massive tree fell onto a home.
