MILLBURY, Ohio (AP) - A police chief says two more people have died in northwest Ohio from tornadoes and thunderstorms that swept through the Midwest overnight, bringing the death toll to seven.

Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer says the two died at hospitals but he did not have more details.

Hummer says authorities have finished searching damaged buildings and he is not aware of anyone missing, but that fields and woods are still being searched.

More than a dozen people in Ohio have been hospitalized with injuries from the storms that caused severe damage to homes, the police station and a high school. Dozens of minor injuries from the storms have also been reported in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio.
