BEDFORD, Pa. -- For nearly two hours Wednesday night, most of Bedford County was under a tornado warning, as a severe storm rotated its way through the heart of the county.

The cleanup is now under way, after severe storms moved through between 5 and 9 p.m., leaving behind damage and reports of several tornado touchdowns.

The county was under a tornado warning from just after 5:30 through 7:45 p.m. as a cell moved from the Centerville area of Cumberland Township, up the Route 220 corridor and over to the Everett area.

The first reports of a tornado touchdown were by local emergency responders in the area of Lake Gordon in the southern part of the county. Later, other tornado activity was spotted in the Everett area by residents.

There were no reports of any serious damage in the county, but minor flooding and downed trees and wires were widespread.
