(AP) — Violent storms swept across the eastern U.S., killing at least 13 people and knocking out power to millions of people on a day when temperatures across the region reached triple-digits.
The Mid-Atlantic region had already been experiencing 100-degree temperatures before Friday evening’s violent storms. More than 3 million were left without power — and without air conditioning — as crews work to clear downed tree limbs and restore electricity.
The storms caused damage from Indiana to New Jersey, although the bulk of it was in West Virginia, Washington and suburban Virginia and Maryland. At least six of the dead were killed in Virginia, including a 90-year-old woman asleep in bed when a tree slammed into her home. Two young cousins in New Jersey were killed when a tree fell on their tent while camping. Two were killed in Maryland, one in Ohio, one in Kentucky and one in Washington.
