Further north in Bradford County emergency responders reported damage to homes and businesses in Granville and Franklin Townships. "That's a concern. But we are lucky no one was seriously hurt", Pedri said.

The tornado in Wilkes-Barre Township was rated an EF-2 on the enhanced Fujita scale and had an estimated maximum wind speed of 130 miles per hour. As of early Thursday afternoon, their live outage map showed that about 1,000 customers around Wilkes-Barre were without power.

The National Weather Service was also assessing the scene Thursday in an effort to determine if a tornado did in fact touch down, as officials at the scene said they suspected.
