Forecasters: 2 tornadoes, winds caused Pa. damage



Published: Thu, July 10, 2014 @ 1:22 p.m.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The National Weather Service says two tornadoes touched down in three counties in the commonwealth during Tuesday’s storm, but other damage elsewhere was due to straight-line winds.

Forecasters said an EF2 tornado with estimated maximum wind speed of 120 mph touched down near Dushore in Sullivan County and moved into Bradford County near New Albany, blowing roofs off a house and several barns and demolishing or damaging trailers.

Another tornado packing maximum winds estimated at 90 mph touched down earlier near Hoagland in Mercer County.

But forecasters said damage reported in New Buffalo in Perry County was due to straight-line winds rather than a tornado.

No injuries were reported.

Utility companies reported almost 50,000 customers still without power today, including almost 24,000 in York County.
