National Weather Service confirms tornado in Pa. and Del.

- The National Weather Service has confirmed tornados touched down in Sussex County, Delaware, and Shartlesville, a tiny village in Upper Bern Township, Berks County, during Monday night’s storms.

National Weather Service officials are expected to visit to determine whether a strong storm on Monday spawned one or more tornadoes. 

No injuries were reported from the tornado, but damage did occur to several structures including a storage building at the Delaware Electric Cooperative site on U.S. Route 13.

Four structures on the northwest side of the intersection of Sugar Hill and St. Johnstown Roads were also damaged.  Most of the damage affected farm buildings; however one nearby home had damage to its porch.

NWS officials say visual evidence, along with radar data received during the storm helped confirm their findings that a tornado had touched down.

Meanwhile, NWS officials say other nearby damage was the result of straight-line winds, some in excess of 90 MPH.
