Tornado May Be Cause Of Lancaster Home Destruction

CLAY TOWNSHIP, Pa.(AP) - Lancaster County officials say a tornado could have cause the destruction to five trailer homes in Clay Township.

Dave Wiker, the county's emergency services shift supervisor, says three people suffered minor injuries Sunday afternoon but had no further details.

Wiker says county officials won't know for certain if a tornado had touched down until National Weather Service officials and the county's emergency management director Randy Gockley survey the area on Monday.

Wiker says emergency service officials received damage reports just before 5 p.m.
