Clermont County building inspectors have completed an assessment of structures impacted by the March 2, 2012 tornado and severe weather.

The estimated value of the structures impacted by the storms is $27.8 million, with a total estimated damage loss of $5.7 million.

A total of 353 structures were impacted in Franklin Township, Tate Township, Washington Township, and the Village of Moscow.  The assessment indicates that 68 structures were destroyed, 7 were single family dwellings and 11 were manufactured structures; 30 suffered major damage, 155 had minor damage, and 100 sustained slight damage.   

The assessment indicates there are a total of 65 structures in Franklin Township that have sustained an estimated damage loss of $525,000; 25 homes were among those impacted.  In Tate Township, 136 structures have sustained an estimated $1.3 million in damages; 70 homes were impacted.  In Washington Township, 32 structures sustained an estimated $169,000 worth of damage; 11 homes were impacted there.  In the village of Moscow, 120 structures sustained an estimated damage loss of $3.7 million, ($2.1 million of that number was to commercial structures, most located on the grounds of the Zimmer Power Plant); 82 single-family homes were impacted in Moscow. 

The final county damage assessment is higher than the assessment reported on March 7, 2012, due to continuing efforts by Permit Central and the Building Inspection Department staff to closely check and verify each report of damage.   

The Board of Clermont County Commissioners has waived fees for building permits involving structures damaged by the March 2, 2012 storms.
