High wind is to blame for damage spread across Central Ohio Tuesday night.

In Richland County, the wind picked up and flipped a mobile home in the community of Bellville.

The homeowner made it out on her own and was taken to the hospital.

Authorities have not released details of her condition.

In Delaware, high winds ripped apart a roof and caused even more damage on the street below.

The roof blew off a flower shop on Winter Street and onto a car.

Brent Davis lives across the street.  He says he heard it come crashing down.

"The storm had just picked up. The wind was blowing around pretty severely out there, shaking the power lines," said Davis.

That's when the roof crushed Graham Burns' car.

"We knew it was going to get bad, but I didn't think it was going to get near that bad," said Burns.  "Stuff was blowing all over the street. The rain was coming down hard.

Burns can't believe the damage seemed to be located almost exclusively on his car.

"There was that much room between the debris pile and the car in front of me. There was no debris around the other car, so it was like someone dropped it right on the car," said Burns.

The Delaware Fire Chief tells 10TV he is handing the investigation over to the national weather service to figure out the exact cause of the damage.

In Dublin,strong winds toppled large tree limbs forcing the temporary closure of Riverside Drive.

The wind was also to blame for knocking over a light pole in Plain City and for flash flooding in Licking County.
