Tornados touched down in Bucks and Mercer counties Thursday evening, downing trees, collapsing buildings and leaving thousands without power.

A partial collapse was reported at the Faulkner Buick GMC Trevose, where a mass casualty was declared.

More than 7,000 Bucks County PECO customers did not have power. More than 500 PSE&G customers were without power in the Trenton area.

Dozens of trees were downed as water flooded streets throughout the area.

A Tornado Watch remains in effect until 9 p.m. for much of the region.
