The severe storms that moved through our area knocked out power to thousands of people and caused the Spring-Ford Area Schools in Montco. to close.

At least 3,000 PECO customers are still without power with most of them in Bucks and Chester counties.

In New Jersey, PSE and G reports 600 outages centered around Deptford and Mount Laurel.

In Atlantic City, nearly 850 are without power, along with 500 Delmarva Power customers in Delaware.

Philadelphia Schools are open but in the Spring-Ford Area School District in Montgomery County, schools are closed because many buildings do not have electricity.
