Multiple tweets indicate a powerful tornado has demolished buildings in the Bensalem Township, a township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, that borders the northeast section of Philadelphia. 

Alertpage Inc. reports a GMC dealership has experienced a "major collapse." 

The real-time public safety news Twitter handle says, "major damage throughout the area [Bensalem] - damage to multiple dwellings & reports of trees down."

The area was under a tornado warning when a "confirmed" tornado ripped through the township. 

A car dealership appears to have collapsed. 

Here's a video of more damage to commercial buildings. There are reports of people "screaming underneath the debris."
