... Summary...
the National Weather Service in State College PA has confirmed a
tornado near South Annville TWP in Lebanon County Pennsylvania on
June 22 2010.

A survey team from the National Weather Service in State College
has concluded that an EF0 tornado touched down briefly at the
thousand trails campground in South Annville township in Lebanon
County around 430 PM Tuesday. Maximum winds within this tornado
were estimated at around 80 mph.

This tornado was embedded within a much larger area of straight
line downburst winds with estimated gusts up to 90 mph. The
damage from the downburst began in Dauphin County just east of
Hershey near the Milton Hershey school... then extended east
southeast for about 7 miles into southwest Lebanon County. The
damage path was up to 1 mile wide and consisted of mainly downed
trees. However... a roof was torn off a home in Derry
township... where 90 winds were estimated. A farmhouse in South
Annville township also suffered significant damage with a portion
of the roof torn off and windows broken.

This information can also be found on our website at
weather.Gov/ctp.

For reference... the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes into
the following categories:

EF0... wind speeds 65 to 85 mph.
EF1... wind speeds 86 to 110 mph.
EF2... wind speeds 111 to 135 mph.
EF3... wind speeds 136 to 165 mph.
EF4... wind speeds 166 to 200 mph.
EF5... wind speeds greater than 200 mph.

For reference...
a microburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow
area of less than 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting less
than 5 minutes. Microbursts may induce dangerous
horizontal/vertical wind shears... which can adversely affect
aircraft performance and cause property damage. Straight-line
winds are generally any wind that is not associated with
rotation... used mainly to differentiate them from tornadic winds.
