Wicked Weather Whips Across Region, Power Out For Many

Wild weather sweeping through the area has brought down trees and knocked out power to thousands.

Tornado warnings were issued for Bradford, Susquehanna, Schuylkill, Northumberland, Wyoming, and Wayne Counties.

A line of strong storms moving northeast triggered tornado warnings just before 6 p.m.

At 7:45 p.m. the PPL Electric Utilities website indicated over 10,000 homes and businesses were without power across the region.

    Pay no attention to the people complaining about how many times you repeated the warnings. That is the whole point so that we have time getting to safety. This is a system people were crying about wanting for so long and now they complain. I thank you for keeping those warnings coming. My family and I were prepared in case we had to take shelter immediately and we thank you for being on top of things! Keep on doing what you’re doing.

    The weather that we have witnessed last night is only the beginning. We will for the very first time, see devastating tornadoes in our area, that have never occurred before.

    OMG we have thunderstorms. Like its never happened before. Keep you warnings on the crawl instead of repeating the same thing over and over like two nervous kids on their first date. If you run out of things to say you’re on too long! Come back when you have something important to say!

      This is for Lenny 1951….these storms are NOT your normal thunderstorms. You’d be the first one complaining that there wasn’t any coverage or warnings if you were the one that suffered severe damage from these storms. Trust me…we have TWICE now. How can you be so insensitive and so stupid. Hat’s off to WNEP and all the news media for keeping everyone informed.
