More than 400K without power as severe thunderstorms batter Northeast

Source: ABC News

More than 400,000 customers in the Northeast are without power due to severe weather that will include thunderstorms, flash flooding, hail, winds up to 80 mph and possibly tornadoes.

As of 5:40 p.m. ET, shortly after the storm began, 408,158 customers in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut had lost electricity.

Service on one of the busiest train lines in the Northeast has been suspended due to the weather.

All of the Metro North lines have been suspended due to downed trees, leading to a frenzy at Grand Central Station in New York City during rush hour on Tuesday. Thousands of people were stranded at the station, ABC New York station WABC reported.

5. Came through here in Philly with some gusty winds and heavy rain

but didn't get hail (haven't seen hail around these parts in probably 20 years). There's actually a rainbow out there right now.

6. It was hot too...90 degrees near Phila.

No wonder so much extreme weather. Too bad it can't just go directly to the W House and sit there for a long, long time. Wash that man right out of our hair.
