Strong Storms Knock Out Power to Hundreds of Thousands
Violent storms whipped through the Philadelphia area last night, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of customers. Winds gusted as high as 60 miles an hour.

Terrifying! The storm did thwart the Revolution’s momentum for a comeback attempt, so perhaps all the power outages were worth it.
