JAMESTOWN – Many across our region are cleaning up damage caused by severe storms overnight.

On Sunday afternoon and Sunday night, severe thunderstorms moved across Northwestern Pennsylvania and Western New York.

As a result of heavy wind and rain, viewers reported downed trees across Chautauqua County.

In Kennedy, many reported damages, including to an SUV which was heavily damaged by a falling tree.

Around 1:30 a.m. Monday, a Tornado Warning was issued for parts of Crawford and Warren Counties in Pennsylvania.

While it is unclear if a funnel cloud actually touched down, damage to those areas were apparent with trees coming falling down and destroying a camper at Shipmans Eddy in Warren on the Allegheny River.

In northern Chautauqua County, Route 5 in Dunkirk was closed just before midnight Sunday after large trees fell over the roadway taking powerlines down as well.

The Dunkirk Streets Department spent the overnight hours, hard at work to clear storm debris from the roadway.
