MONTROSE, Pa. -- A man was killed, and thousands were left without power Thursday night after severe thunderstorms blasted multiple areas up and down the Eastern Seaboard. And the region faces a second round of severe weather on Friday.
In northeastern Pennsylvania, a man was killed by a falling tree, according to the NWS.
Multiple trees fell into homes in northern Richmond, Virginia, NWS spotters reported. Another tree fell into an occupied camper in Lisle, New York, and onto a car in Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. In western Maryland, trees fell across parts of Interstates 70, 81 and 270 as storms rolled through, and the town of Falling Waters registered a gust of 75 mph.
Farther south, a roof and carport suffered structural wind damage in Twiggs County, Georgia.
Over 125,000 people were still without power Friday morning, mainly in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, according to Poweroutage.US.
The cold front slowly trudging east triggering the storms was set to bring a renewed threat of severe weather Friday, but the silver lining is the storms will usher in cooler air, bringing relief to a blistering late summer heat wave that has set multiple records across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
