Strong storms wreak havoc in Northern Pennsylvania

(WBNG) — A radar-indicated tornado ripped through parts of Bradford County, Pennsylvania Tuesday afternoon, leaving trees scattered in its wake.

Shortly before five, strong winds tore through Rome and Ulster townships, as downed trees blocked roads, shingles were strewn across lawns and houses suffered significant damage.

It was classified as a radar-indicated tornado because debris showed up on Doppler radar, an almost surefire indication of a tornado. The storm cannot be classified as a tornado until the National Weather Service is able to survey the scene in person, which it will do Wednesday.

If your area is threatened by a tornado, always remember to shelter in basements or buildings with sturdy foundations, not mobile homes or cars.
