Damaging storms rolled through our area Tuesday afternoon.

The storms toppled trees and ripped out power lines in Lackawanna County.

We found branches down onto a home along Swetland Street in Scranton.

It was a similar scene a few miles away in Old Forge where emergency crews were checking out downed power lines and a tree near Sibley Avenue.

In Luzerne County, a cemetery was also damaged. A viewer sent in photos from Marcy Cemetery along Foote Avenue where you can see a large branch snapped and crushed a pickup truck.

A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect for most of the area until 9 p.m.
