The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in Gloucester County, New Jersey, on Thursday evening, 6/13. It happened just before 9 p.m. They say the same tornado touched down twice; once in in Mullica Hill as an EF0, then again near Deptford as an EF1. There were Tornado Warnings for areas in Southeast Pennsylvania including Philadelphia as well as South Jersey. A line of thunderstorms came through the area this evening with heavy rain, winds, and lightning.

Possible tornado in Wenonah, NJ.

Two teenagers were killed by lightning in a park in Western Pennsylvania on Thursday afternoon, 6/13. They were found underneath a large splintered tree at Mammoth Park near Kecksburg in Westmoreland County. CPR was performed on 18-year-old Brendan McGowan of North Huntingdon and 19-year-old Kaitlyn Rosensteel of Donoroa, but they could not be revived. They were on a peninsula on a 24-acre lake when thunderstorms came through. Mammoth Park is about 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

Police are investigating a possible abduction in King of Prussia on Thursday night, 6/13. It happened around 11 p.m. on the 100 block of Colonial Place in Upper Merion Township. Police say they received a call from a woman saying that her wife had been taken from their home by a group of men and forced into one of two SUVs the group was driving. A neighbor also called to report the incident. The wife got into her car and followed the abductors, staying in contact with police. They headed on I-76 into Philadelphia. An Upper Merion Township police officer caught up with her, as well as the Philadelphia Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police. They got the wife to pull over, but could not find the other vehicles. A few hours later, the victim was found unharmed. The woman does not know why she were targeted. She also did not see a weapon, but it was implied the men had guns. Police believe this was an isolated incident.

A 63-year-old man died after a fight with a roommate over a an argument about loud noise in South Philadelphia on Thursday night, 6/13. It happened around 11:30 p.m at a rooming house on the 1500 block of Jackson Street. The older man lives on the second floor and went to basement to complain to a 26-year-old roommate about loud noise, possibly music. At some point during the confrontation the older man fell and died. The 26-year-old was arrested and other roommates are being questioned. "Whether he was punched or pushed, we don't know. We know there was a physical altercation, according to witnesses," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said. "We know that the 26-year-old, who had the physical altercation with the 63-year-old, we're told that male does stay in the basement, occasionally. Now, we don't know if it's his permanent address, but we believe he may sometimes hangout or stay in the basement."
