October 2, 2018

SPRING BROOK TWP. — A funnel cloud reportedly touched down in the township this evening.

Reports of the touchdown have yet to be confirmed, Lackawanna County Emergency Services Director David Hahn said. The report came in at about 6:15 p.m. A firefighter with Spring Brook Twp. Volunteer Fire Company reported seeing the cloud touch down across from the firehouse located along state Route 690. The National Weather Service may come in to investigate to confirm the funnel cloud depending on the type of damage the area receives, Hahn said.

Southern Lackawanna County received the brunt of the storm Tuesday night, with reports of fallen trees and flooded streets common in Roaring Brook and Elmhurst townships and elsewhere in the North Pocono region of the county, Hahn said. No major damage had yet been reported, Hahn said.

About 110 customers are without power in the Spring Brook Twp. area, according to an outage map on the company website. Power is expected to be restored around 12:30 a.m.
