Five hurt in Philadelphia-area tornado

A tornado ripped through a Philadelphia suburban township, injuring five people, heavily damaging a car dealership, flipping vehicles and striking a trailer park, police said.

The injuries were described as minor, but the toll could have been far worse from the storm that struck Bensalem Township shortly after 7 p.m., Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran said.

Four people were injured at the car dealership, and the fifth was wounded at another location.
