Tornado Touched Down in Chester County

An EF-1 tornado touched down in Chester County Tuesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. 

The NWS confirms the tornado touched down near Honey Brook at 2:11 p.m. with an estimated maximum wind speed of 95 mph, a maximum path width of 100 yards and a maximum path length of 1.5 miles. 

Investigators focused on Chester County as well as Berks and Lancaster counties Wednesday, a day after a storm brought funnel clouds, rain and heavy winds to the region. 

The National Weather Service also visited Lehigh County to determine whether a tornado touched down there as well. They later determined a microburst, not a tornado, touched down near Whitehall Township Tuesday.
