According to Lee Hendricks of the National Weather Service of Pittsburgh, they received multiple reports of storm damage in the Parker area, including reports of structural damage, trees down, and trees completely uprooted.
The National Weather Service said trees were also down on Concord Church Road and in the Dutch Hill area of Clarion County, and trees and lines were down in the Alcola area.
Clarion County 9-1-1 received several reports of damage in the Parker area, as well as reports of some damage throughout other areas of Clarion County, including trees down in Perry, Toby, and Farmington Townships and electrical lines down in Redbank Township.
In the outlying region, the National Weather Service received additional reports of trees down and a trailer overturned along State Route 62 near Sharon, in Mercer County.
Representatives from Jefferson County 9-1-1 and Venango County 9-1-1 said no damages were reported in their respective counties.
No injuries were reported in the region.
The Pittsburgh office of the National Weather Service will have representatives looking into the storm damage today to confirm whether or not a tornado touched down in the area.
The area in question was part of the location covered by a Tornado Warning issued by the National Weather Service shortly after 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
According to Hendricks, the storm that left the local damage in its wake was “really the only severe storm on radar last night,” while much of the rest of the region only saw some rain.
“It was just one extremely powerful storm,” Hendricks noted.
