At least two tornadoes have been confirmed during powerful storms that also brought flooding and damaged homes throughout the region Wednesday into Thursday.
One twister was reported about 9 p.m. in Berks County while a second struck an area of western Montgomery County, the National Weather Service said.
The first tornado touched down in Tilden Township, Berks County, though the NWS did not immediately release more information about its severity.
The second struck Souderton and traveled a short distance into Perkasie in neighboring Berks County, the NWS said. It was confirmed as having wind speeds of EF-1.
Wednesday night’s storm brought widespread flooding to some parts of the region. In King of Prussia, cars got stranded underneath a freeway overpass on Gulph Road as they tried to driver through floodwaters.
The poor conditions also prompted water rescues and triggered crashes, and powerful winds ripped parts of the roofs of various homes.
Though the storms moved out of the region overnight, many residents were still dealing with both floodwater and wind damage.
