The National Weather Service in State College PA has confirmed a
tornado near Toby in Elk County Pennsylvania on October 2, 2018.

The tornado brought down several trees in a convergent pattern along 
a small path near Toby Rd in Toby, PA. Additional damage may have 
occurred further east along the path, but the area was inaccessible 
due to rugged terrain. Time is estimated based on radar. Winds are 
estimated on the lower bound of expected winds for downed trees due 
to wet soils.
