Philadelphia tornadoes: Fears amid 'Dangerous' twisters and 'ping-pong ball' sized hail

A "dangerous" twister was spotted at 5.50pm near Lumberville, Bucks County moving at 25 mph toward Mercer County, NJ.

Another tornado was reported to have touched down near New Hope, Pa around 10 minutes later.

Christie Lleto, a reporter for the news channel 6abc, described some of the damage sustained at a car dealership in Trevose, Pa - by what might have been a tornado.

She tweeted: "The winds were so powerful it uprooted a utility box, knocked over several light poles smashing cars, and lifted part of the dealerships’ roofs."

Aerial footage showed considerable devastation caused by the severe weather.

Some buildings had their roofs ripped off, with the debris left scattered over a wide area.

A car had been tossed into the air, before crashing back down to earth - landing on its roof among other vehicles in a parking lot.

Trees were literally shaped in half by the force of the powerful winds.

Jim Rosenfield, from NBC Philadelphia, reported another tornado over Bensalem, along with hail the size of ping pong balls.

He tweeted: "Confirmed tornado over Bensalem near Neshaminy Mall, Bucks Co, with hail size of ping pong balls.

"Moving southeast now. Take shelter now."

A Tornado Watch remains in effect for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware until 9 p.m. Thursday, July 29.
