Damage & Power Outages After Tornado Warnings
Multiple tornado warnings were allowed to expire Thursday night for the Southwestern Pennsylvania area, including Washington County. The National Weather Service has not yet confirmed whether any tornadoes actually touched down, but there were multiple reports of widespread power outages, damaged roofs and downed trees. As of late Thursday, there were no reported injuries. West Penn Power reported that at the height of the storm in Washington County, there were more than sixteen-hundred customers without power. Much of the damage reported in Washington County appeared to be in the Peters Township and Canonsburg areas, close to the Allegheny County line.
