Tornado warnings were issued for roughly three quarters of New Jersey counties Thursday after thunderstorms brought severe weather, hail and a chance of flooding into the Northeast.

A “large and dangerous tornado” was confirmed in Bucks County, Pennsylvania moving toward Trenton, New Jersey around 7 p.m., according to Lauren Casey, a meteorologist for CBS 3 in Philadelphia.

It struck after thunderstorms had moved into the region Thursday evening.

At least one other tornado was reported in Bensalem, Penn. Video shared to Twitter shows what appears to be a battered parking lot in its wake, with torn off rooftops and crumbled walls as well as rain-soaked debris at a decimated car dealership.

Fox News reported earlier Thursday that severe weather that wreaked havoc in the Midwest would be moving into the Ohio Valley and Northeast later in the evening – bringing a chance of large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.
