Deadly Storm Slams Northeast

More than 500,000 homes were without electricity in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York Sunday after a deadly storm knocked over trees and scattered debris with winds that reached 70 mph. At least two people were killed due to the hurricane-force winds. In Pittsburgh, meteorologists warned against the worst potential flooding since Hurricane Ivan in 2004. At least 4 inches of rain fell in parts of New Jersey. Similar to this month’s snowstorm, transportation proved problematic. Washington D.C.-bound passengers found themselves stranded on their train through New Jersey for nearly five hours before moving on and airport delays reached four hours. Residents in Atlantic City were evacuated to the Convention Center after a crane arm fell 47 floors into the Revel Casino construction site.
