Tropical storm-force winds tore through eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey on Saturday, flipping over an airplane at an airport.
Local news station WFMZ-69 of Allentown tweeted a picture of an overturned Cessna 152 at Lehigh Valley International Airport in Hanover Township.
Lehigh Valley Live reported that winds as high as 64 miles per hour tore through US-22 corridor, causing downed trees and treacherous conditions in addition to the plane incident.
Charles Everett, the executive director of the airport, said they were in the process of assessing the damage.

"I've never seen that before in my life, so that was pretty crazy," Jen Smith, a resident of Catasauqua borough, which borders the airport, told WFMZ.
LVIA also suffered damaged windows and a leaking roof, and WBRE estimated the repairs to cost thousands of dollars.
