Storm Cripples Eastern U.S.

by Associated Press posted Jul 1 2012 11:09AM
 Violent storms swept across the eastern U.S., killing at least 10 people and knocking out power to millions of people on a day that temperatures across the region are expected to reach 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 were blamed for the deaths of six people in Virginia; two in New Jersey; one in Ohio; and another in Maryland. In suburban Washington, residents were told to call non-emergency phone numbers or go to fire and police stations if they needed help because even 911 emergency call centers were without electricity.
