Torrential Rain Moves Out, Clean Up Begins

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The rain has moved out of our area, but be forewarned - there will be a few lingering, pop-up showers showing up on radar over the next few hours.

The sun is beginning to break though and we are well on the way to a beautiful weather pattern.  That good weather will aid in the extensive clean up around our area due to this morning's awful rain.

Several towns had reported that they receipted upwards of 6" in the last few hours.

All of that rain has to go somewhere, so there is still a Flash Flood warning in effect for our entire viewing area until 2:45pm.

Ocean County, NJ was under a Tornado Warning for approximately 15 minutes last this morning. 

Yet another Tornado Warning issued for New Castle County in Delaware, Cecil County in Maryland and Chester County in Pennsylvania.  That expired at 7:15 a.m.

All flights in and out of Philadelphia International Airport were delayed as the storm moved though South Philadelphia.  As of 12:50, several flights were still listed as delayed. 

SEPTA is reporting  that the Manayunk/Norristown service between Miquon & Norristown is suspended.  They are hoping to have that line back open by 4pm.

According to AMTRAK's twitter feed, crews are working to restore power to some tracks.  There is still a 20-40 minute delay on some train lines.
