Friday’s wicked thunderstorm carried a punch in Lackawanna, Susquehanna and Wayne Counties.
The National Weather Service issued a preliminary report that an EF-1 tornado touched down near Honesdale, Wayne County. There was significant tree damage along Route 6 and buildings were damaged.
In Montrose, Susquehanna County, straight-line winds were responsible for damage from the same storm. Straight-lines winds are non-tornadic in nature and are sometimes called microbursts or downbursts.
Scranton experiences widespread damage from straight-lines winds Friday evening as well.
Wind speed estimate information should be available Sunday.
