MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The National Weather Service says recent severe storms produced a tornado in northern West Virginia but did not form a twister in the Eastern Panhandle.

Media outlets report the weather service confirmed an EF-0 tornado with winds up to 80 mph on Thursday in Monongalia County. The tornado went a few hundred yards before dissipating. No one was injured.

The weather service says a storm Thursday in Berkeley Springs and Martinsburg did not produce a tornado. Instead, trees were knocked down by a microburst with straight-line winds of up to 70 mph.

The storms also produced golf-ball size hail and knocked out power to thousands across northern and eastern sections of the state.
