0

The National Weather Service at State College dispatched crews Monday morning to try to determine whether tornadoes might have struck in at least two areas of Pennsylvania overnight.

Aaron Tybeurski of the service said those teams were sent to Warren County and to the area around Lewisburg.

He said he expected the teams to make preliminary reports Monday afternoon.

High winds in the storms toppled several buildings in Pennsylvania. A church and a warehouse in Millersburg in upper Dauphin County were among the casualties. Both suffered roof damage.

Toppled trees and downed power lines were reported in and around Millerstown. At midmorning, PPL listed hundreds of power outages in the Newport-Millerstown area of Perry County and in western Juniata County. Another 626 customers were without electricity in the Lykens area of Dauphin County.

Across the state, PPL was reporting about 28,000 customers without power by mid-morning Monday with many of the outages concentrated in central Pennsylvania in Columbia, Snyder, Luzerne, Lackawanna and Northumberland counties.

The roof of Ark Safety, a business on North Street in Millersburg, was blown off by storm winds Sunday night.
