Bensalem Tornado
Thursday, July 29th, 2021

At around 1915hrs, the Bucks County 911 Center began to receive numerous calls reporting a tornado touching down along Street Rd near the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Old Lincoln Highway area. The first significant incident was for the Faulkner Auto Dealership along Street Rd. Rescue 4 arrived to a major building collapse with the potential for multiple victims. In the next few minutes crews were dispatched to the Penn Valley Mobile Home Park for reports of numerous mobile homes damage and overturned and then along Metropolitan Drive for a large building with structural damage.. Rescue 9 was initially assigned to the Pennsylvania Turnpike near the interchange for a report of an occupant trapped in their vehicle after being directly hit by the tornado. That assignment was recalled and Rescue 9 was diverted to the mobile home park. Once on location, the crew worked along with Sta44/88 to remove debris and downed trees to make the neighborhood accessible to resources. Once this assignment was complete, Rescue 9 was then diverted to relocate to Station 65 to provide township rescue coverage as crews continued to work along Street Road as well as other incidents on Metropolitan Drive. Crews returned available shortly after 2300hrs.
