For some Ohioans, the memory of Hurricane Ike is only surpassed by the damage it caused last Sept. 14 as it made its way across the Buckeye State packing winds at speeds equal to a Category 1 hurricane (up to 74 mph). Strong winds moved diagonally across the state from southwest to northeast over a four-hour period that Sunday afternoon, according to Ohio EMA reports. Losses compiled by insurance companies and state government mounted over time, capping Ohio's largest natural disaster in recent history - the Xenia tornado of 1974.
