DUBOIS, Pa. (AP) – Residents in parts of central Pennsylvania are cleaning up after severe thunderstorms swept through the region, causing flooding, damaging homes and forcing evacuations.
No serious injuries were immediately reported in the wake of Thursday night’s storms. Officials are investigating several reports of possible tornadoes.
In Dubois, the rains caused the evacuation of a Hampton Inn and people were moved to a high school. There were also evacuations in Jefferson County.
In Centre County, emergency officials say a home partially collapsed outside of Pine Grove Mills when flooding damaged its foundation. Officials say residents escaped with minor injuries. In State College, eight apartments in the Marvin Gardens had to be evacuated after filling with several feet of water.
Officials say the threat of flooding remains in many areas Friday.
