Tornadoes spur injuries, damage in eastern Pennsylvania


BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) — At least five people were injured when severe weather struck homes and businesses in eastern Pennsylvania. The National Weather Service says two tornadoes touched down in Bucks County on Thursday, including an EF-3 twister that hit in Bensalem and contained top winds of 140 mph. The tornado sent trees falling and debris flying, while thunderous downpours flooded streets and roadways. One of the tornadoes damaged a Bensalem auto dealership and a mobile home park. Authorities say four people were injured at the dealership and a fifth was hurt at a nearby business. All injuries are considered non-life-threatening. Crews were still working Friday to restore power and clear debris from roads.
