WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Faye Stouffer waited inside Sunday while a storm roared outside, eventually ripping an antenna off her home and toppling a tree in her yard.
Officials said the storm might have produced a tornado.
“All of a sudden, (there was) one big noise, and wind took everything. It was sort of like a train sound or roar,” said Stouffer, of 1301 Preston Lane.
The National Weather Service in State College, Pa., was expected to send a meteorologist to the site sometime Monday, meteorologist Elyse Colbert said Monday morning.
A determination as to whether a tornado touched down could be reached by Monday afternoon, she said.
The 2 p.m. winds tossed shutters, siding, farm equipment, tree branches and a portable basketball hoop.
Franklin County, Pa., damage-assessment teams investigated around the 12000 block of Williamsport Pike.
A retired U.S. Navymeteorologist, 911 callers and police officers witnessed what they believed to be a tornado in the area, said Dave Donohue, director of the Franklin County (Pa.) Department of Emergency Services.
