According to dispatchers, crews from Dayton Power & Light, Vectren and multiple fire departments are in the area working to clean up. However, dispatchers encourage people to avoid central Troy due to the danger posed by damaged structures.

Several power outages were reported across the county, and there have been multiple reports of snapped poles and power lines down. Gas leaks have been reported, but dispatchers said that none have been confirmed. 

Large trees have been reported down in roadways.
