The confirmed tornado touchdowns in northwestern Pennsylvania on Tuesday night were followed up Wednesday with a late afternoon downburst in the Cambridge Springs area.

There were reports of homes and vehicles damaged by falling trees caused by the strong winds, and the roof of an auto repair shop was blown off.  No injuries were reported.

The winds came just hours after National Weather Service officials had confirmed that tornadoes had indeed touched down Tuesday evening in Union City and near Cranesville.  Other potential tornadoes were spotted Tuesday night in Scandia and Conewango Township in Warren County.

At least fifteen families were affected by damage to their homes in Union City.  Two injuries were reported.  Five people were treated for injuries when their mobile home near Cranesville was leveled.  In Warren County, wind storms ripped through buildings at the Farm Colony Complex in Conewango Township, and fields and a golf course were ravaged.  Severe flooding was reported, and nearly 7,000 customers were left without electricity.
