Downed branches, wires litter local area

LEWISTOWN – Numerous trees, limbs and power lines fell Sunday afternoon after a severe thunderstorm with high winds rolled through the area.

“Wind was a major factor in the storm and lots of trees and power lines came down,” Mifflin County 911 supervisor Brian Fleegal said.

Fleegal said the largest problem emergency services dealt with was a felled tree on state Route 103 in North Granville Township that brought down power lines, causing a short power outage.

There were reports of limbs and wires down throughout Mifflin and Juniata counties, including Burnham, state Route 655 between Reedsville and Belleville, Jack’s Creek, Ferguson Valley Road and on U.S. 322 near the Walnut Street interchange.

Fleegal said no injuries were reported as a result of the storm.
