HEMPFIELD, Pa. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in western Pennsylvania, but no injuries were reported.

The agency’s office in Pittsburgh confirmed Thursday that a tornado touched down around 8 p.m. Wednesday in Westmoreland County.

But they say further determination of strength and path length won’t be disclosed until their ongoing survey of damage in at least three rural towns is completed. It wasn’t clear when that would happen.

Residents report that they barely had time to seek shelter when the fast-moving storm hit. They say numerous trees were snapped or uprooted, while some homes and roofs had what appeared to be minor damage.
