...STRAIGHT LINE WIND DAMAGE CONFIRMED ACROSS NORTH CENTRAL PA...

A damage survey team examined storm damage in Elk, Cameron and
Clinton Counties today.

Damage consistent with straight-line thunderstorm wind gusts was
observed across a wide area from central Elk County, especially
south and east of St. Mary`s, eastward into south-central Cameron
County near Driftwood. More sporadic tree damage was also seen in
northern Clinton County. None of the damage surveyed appeared to
have been caused by a tornado.

Overall, the team saw around 100 trees downed by the strong winds.
One building in Driftwood sustained damage, and multiple telephone
and power poles were knocked down east of St. Mary`s.

The wind which produced the worst of the damage was estimated to
be between 90 and 100 mph.
