Wondering About Local Tornadoes

Last week there was a tornado warning in Lancaster county. It turned out that the NWS said it was straight line wind damage but it got me wondering how many tornadoes have been in this area. A few years ago there was the one in Campbelltown. That was an F-2 and destroyed some houses.

Molly told she remembered hearing about a small tornado in town.. I did find one on the NWS’s site that could have been the one she was talking about. It was an f-0 and only 75 yards wide. Molly had said she remembered hearing it went between houses and caused no damage. The NWS site seemed to say the same thing but it had very little details on the tornado it self. I just thought it was pretty interesting that one has occurred so close to home.
