At least 20 people were injured after severe storms ripped up tents and knocked down trees Saturday afternoon in Huntington County. The National Weather Service said late Saturday gusts between 60 and 70 mph knocked down at least a dozen trees around 1:20 p.m. The injuries happened at the Creation Festival, a Christian music festival at Agape Farm near Shirleysburg, according to Penn Live. Three of those injured were taken to the hospital, but none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening. NWS said the storm knocked down dozens of tents, including a "large party tent," at the campground. Huntingdon County Emergency Management Agency was on scene assisting. The festival continued as scheduled by Saturday night, according to posts by the EMA.
