CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH – Last night’s storms in Cleveland caused damage to the Justice Center Complex and surrounding areas.

  • Tower II: three windows blown out on ninth floor in City Police Chief’s Office

Heavy winds hit Fort Huntington Park next to the Old Courthouse. No damage has been detected so far to the Police Memorial and other statues.

We are currently assessing the damage and conducting cleanup efforts.
