The cleanup begins Wednesday in Erie County, Pennsylvania after a suspected tornado tore through the county Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service in Cleveland said a tornado warning was issued for Erie County after a funnel cloud was sighted around 8 p.m. near Edinboro.

A resident managed to capture video of the funnel cloud.

Authorities said the storm destroyed a mobile home, knocked down power lines and trees, and caused some damage to buildings. So far there are no reports of injuries.

The Erie County Emergency Management Agency said there may have even been two tornadoes in the area.

The National Weather Service will go out Wednesday to check out the damage and officially confirm that a tornado did hit in Erie County and will gauge the storm.

Since 1950, there have been 18 tornadoes in Erie County. The strongest of them were two EF-4 tornadoes which occurred May 31, 1985 during storms that also tore through the Valley.
