Workers wade through floodwaters to recover lumber that floated from a lumber yard, Wednesday, May 29, 2019, in Harmony, Pa. More storms are predicted for the area.

Pennsylvania faces a third day of severe weather while people clean up from storms that downed trees, power lines and caused flooding.

Thursday's forecast calls for storms that could pack damaging wind and hail. The risk continues for flash flooding. However, the weather in the Pittsburgh region is expected to be less severe, according to the National Weather Service. 

The Central Bucks School District has canceled classes in several schools because of power outages caused by Wednesday's storms.

In the western part of the state, a section of I-79 has reopened after it was closed for hours because of downed power lines.

An Amtrak train from New York to Pittsburgh resumed its trip after it was stopped in Mifflin County for more than an hour because of downed trees.

The National Weather Service has determined at least three tornadoes touched down in Berks, Bradford and Indiana counties this week.
