The Emlenton area took the brunt of the damage, including multiple downed trees and destructive wind around 4 p.m. The downed trees along College Street (pictured above) resulted in heavy damage to multiple vehicles.

Additionally, residential damage has been reported by multiple Emlenton area homeowners.

At 4:10 p.m., a portion of Interstate 80 was closed near mile exit 45 due to lines down on the roadway. Both travel lanes were shut down for approximately 40 minutes.

Between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh received dozens of reports of downed trees and wind damage throughout Butler, Clarion, Forest, Mercer, and Venango counties.

The severe weather has resulted in power outages for approximately 1,800 Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) members, with the majority of outages in western Venango County and the Coaltown area of western Butler. Outages were scattered in other counties served by CEC. CEC crews will continue to work throughout the night to restore power to its members.

No injuries have been reported.
