TORNADO REPORTED

Hooftallen Photo Hooftallen Photo Violent rain and wind storms ripped through the area last Fri­day, knocking out power in sev­eral area municipalities and do­ing even more severe damage in southern Potter County where many residents reported seeing ­funnel clouds. Several homes in the Bailey Run area were pum­melled by falling trees downed by 60 mph wind gusts.
