The National Weather Service has now confirmed five tornadoes touched down in northeastern and central Pennsylvania Tuesday night.

The NWS says an EF-1 tornado with wind speeds between 90-100 mph touched down in Jackson Township in Monroe County. The tornado ripped up trees for more than a mile along Jackson Road, Sportsmans Trail, and Skyhawk Trail. It also damaged the roof of a home.

Another tornado hit in the Lake Harmony area in Carbon County, damaging trees near Big Boulder Ski Area. The National Weather Service said this twister had wind speeds between 100-110 mph and was on the ground for nearly a mile.

One EF-2 tornado was confirmed in Lycoming County, near the Tioga County line.

In Lackawanna County, two EF-0 tornadoes hit near Moscow in Spring Brook Township.

A previous version of this story incorrectly indicated that there were six tornadoes. Storm damage at the Lycoming/Tioga line was caused by one tornado, not two, according to the National Weather Service.
