Township Emergency Service Responses Continue

This morning’s round of severe storms, which impacted Anderson Township between 6:45 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. have resulted in more than 35 calls for emergency services.

The primary concentration of phone calls and damage appears to be in the southern part of Anderson Township, south of Salem Road and Beechmont Avenue. As of 9 a.m. based on Duke Energy Ohio’s website, it appears there are more than 5,000 customers, primarily in the southern part of the township without power, said Assistant Director of Operations Steve Sievers.

“The majority of calls appear to be wind related, including damage to roofs and homes, and downed trees or power lines,” said Fire Chief Mark Ober.    

A cluster of damage reports in the Nimitz Road and Phillips Road area, in the Chesterton Way vicinity, and on Wetheridge Drive and Stonington Drive, includes substantial damage to several homes.

“Anderson Township is working with other agencies, including the Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency, the National Weather Service, Duke Energy, and Hamilton County Building Inspectors, to assess the storm damage and assist property owners in this area,” said Vicky Earhart, township administrator.

As the township remains under a flood warning and a flood watch through later today, officials continue to monitor the situation as heavy rains linger over saturated soil where several inches of rain have fallen.

“We will continue to respond and assist our residents and businesses as calls for service are received,” noted Trustee President Josh Gerth. 

Officials will be monitoring the situation later today as the combination of additional rainfall and predicted high winds, could trigger fallen trees and additional impacts to property and roadways. 

Residents are urged to monitor media outlets and the township’s website at, or Facebook page, “Anderson Township, Ohio” for local updates.
