The powerful storm struck a shopping plaza late Wednesday night in Wilkes-Barre Township while the area was under a tornado warning. Nearly everyone's cars in the parking lot were destroyed. In Bradford County, damage was reported in three neighboring townships, but emergency personnel said there were no reports of injuries.
