Most of the paranormal stuff takes place near the end of the story culminating in the massive storm, the appearance of the Madeline zombie and finally collapse of the house itself. Here are a few quote.

#1 Narrator can't sleep because of the whole creepy ordeal,

"Sleep came not near my couch - while the hours waned and waned away. I struggled to reason off the nervousness which had dominion over me."

#2. Apperently the fury of the storm was around the House of Usher!

"The impetuous fury of the entering gust nearly lifted us from our feet. It was, indeed, a tempestuous yet sternly beautiful night, and one wildly singular in its terror and its beauty. A whirlwind had apparently collected its force in our vicinity."

#3. Everything starts to glow!!

" nor was there any flashing forth of the lightning. But the under surfaces of the huge masses of agitated vapor, as well as all terrestrial objects immediately around us, were glowing in the unnatural light of a faintly luminous and distinctly visible gaseous exhalation which hung about and enshrouded the mansion."

#4 Crazy scary sounds.

"I did actually hear (although from what direction it proceeded I found it impossible to say) a low and apparently distant, but harsh, protracted, and most unusual screaming or grating sound"
