CONNEAUTVILLE, P.a. – A tornado hit an eldercare nursing facility in Crawford County, P.a. during a strong line of Thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon stretching from Ohio to Warren County.
Two residents at Rolling Fields Eldercare were hospitalized for unrelated concerns, according to a tweet from the facility. No serious injuries have been reported.
The facility is around 70 miles from Jamestown and was recently purchased by Heritage Ministries.
Ministries spokeswoman Lisa Haglund told WNYNewsNow that “all resident are being evacuated, and at this point our main priority is the elders (residents), care-partners (employees) and all others on site.”
Emergency crews used buses to move patients out of the facility to the Conneautville Fire Department. More than 150 people live at the nursing home.


The Red Cross opened a reception center at the Church of Christ on Main Street in Conneautville for those evacuated from the facility.
Officals said if needed the church will be converted into a full-service shelter later tonight.
The National Weather Service has a crew on scene and is looking at storm damage.
