PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Powerful thunderstorms moving across Pennsylvania have left nearly 150,000 customers without power.
PECO is reporting most of the outages. About 135,000 PECO customers are in the dark in the Philadelphia area, with more than half of those outages in Chester County. PPL Electric Utilities says more than 10,000 of its customers have lost power, widely scattered throughout central and eastern Pennsylvania.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for many small streams and is urging motorists to be on the lookout for flooded roads.
The bad weather forced postponement of several fireworks displays Thursday night.
