1 dead, 1 injured as severe storms sweep from Midwest through Northeast Sunday
A severe thunderstorm swept through Venango County, Pennsylvania, Sunday afternoon, knocking a large tree onto two trailers in the Idlewood Trailer Park in Uniontown.
One person was killed and another was injured in severe storms as a frontal boundary that moved through the Upper Midwest on Saturday continued its trek eastward Sunday, triggering showers and thunderstorms from the Ohio Valley through the Northeast.
A severe thunderstorm swept through Venango County, Pennsylvania, Sunday afternoon, knocking a large tree onto two trailers in the Idlewood Trailer Park in Uniontown, according to the National Weather Service, sourcing a 911 call center report. One person was killed, but no other details were given.
In Bradford County, Pennsylvania, a tree fell on a pedestrian near Towanda, the NWS said. There is no word on that person's condition.
A 911 call center in Kane has received over 30 reports of trees down on cars, houses, power lines and across roads, according to the National Weather Service. A spotter reported a tree down into a trailer near Polk and other trees down in Warren County.
In New York, Wellsville recorded a gust of 59 mph and Elmira hit 58 mph as a thunderstorm passed through. Over a dozen storm reports indicating tree falls have come in to the National Weather Service in the regions surrounding Elire, Ithaca and Oneonta. About 70,000 were without power in Pennsylvania and New York as of 7:15 p.m. ET.
The same frontal boundary will only manage to slide slightly eastward on Monday, meaning parts of the Northeast and mid-Atlantic will see an increased chance for strong to severe storms.
The primary threat from the strongest of the storms appears to be damaging winds in the form of downbursts.
The boundary is expected to linger for areas of the mid-Atlantic and Tennessee Valley into the workweek, which will help keep storm chances around for several days.
