The following is a weather update from Van Wert County EMA Director Rick W. McCoy

A TORNADO WATCH remains in effect until 5 pm. It appears at this point the storms may hit Van Wert between 2 p.m. and 3pm. If so, we will be holding all of the schools from dismissing. Also this is a special Tornado Watch which is rather rare in our area but it is a PDS Watch indicating a (PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION). The storms may have winds to 80 mph doing significant damage, hail of 2 inches in diameter with a squall line and discrete supercells. Tornadoes will be possible. monitor weather radio and media for updates and review your safety plans now!
