National Weather Service: Tornado touched down near Morgantown, Berks County

National Weather Service: Tornado touched down near Morgantown, Berks County

A snowplow clearing debris from I-75.

The National Weather Service said a survey team determined Wednesday morning that the twister touched down in Stanhope, about 45 miles west of New York City. "At this time, we can confirm that a tornado did occur near Morgantown in Berks County PA based on video received showing a tornado on the ground".

There are only four other recorded instances when more than 500 US tornadoes were observed in a 30-day period: in 2003, 2004, 2008 and 2011, according to Patrick Marsh, a meteorologist with the weather service's Storm Prediction Center.

Three tornadoes touched down in Pennsylvania on Tuesday night.

The least fortunate might have lost their homes entirely, according to WCPO sister station WHIO.




A man and woman inspect the damage to their home and classic cars after being hit by a tornado in a neighborhood south of Lawrence, Kansas, near US-59 highway and N. 1000 Road on May 28, 2019. "Every house you look at has substantial damage".

Celina Mayor Jeffrey Hazel confirmed in a 1:15 a.m. interview multiple homes had been destroyed - one reduced to the foundation - and the American Red Cross had set up an emergency shelter for those displaced by the weather.

Furthermore, according to Hazel, the entire city of over 10,000 was without electricity after damage to its power lines.

Much of the Miami Valley spent Monday night under an overlapping network of severe thunderstorms, at least two of which produced reports of tornadoes near Beavercreek Township, Trotwood and Vandalia. WHIO reported Brookville High Schoo in Brookville, Ohiol had canceled classes for Tuesday after winds ripped the roof off.

It was a terrifying sight as severe weather struck Morgantown.
