    June is usually one of the more active months for severe thunderstorms across the US. This year has been no exception with what seems to be a continuous round of storms with large hail, flooding rains, and damaging tornadoes.

     The latest round of tornadoes swept across the Midwest on Monday as the violent storms ran across parts of Ohio and Indiana states.

    The National Weather Service was able to confirm that a tornado did touch down in the northeast of Ohio. At least 10 homes were damaged in Brunswick, which is around 50km to the southwest of Cleveland.

    Several homes suffered significant damage and many families had to seek shelter elsewhere. Meanwhile, thunderstorms also battered parts of Indiana, leaving around 25,000 customers without electricity at some point.
