Thunderstorms Down Trees, Power Lines In Delaware

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Thunderstorms with large hail knocked down trees, flooded roads and left thousands in the dark in New Castle County.
    
As many as 11,000 customers lost power Monday night after the storms blew through the region. By Tuesday morning Delmarva Power reports that power had been restored to all but 1,500 in New Castle County, Del., and 300 in Kent County, Md. The company says service to some customers in the Wilmington area may not be restored until noon.
    
The National Weather Service reported 3/4-inch hail fell in Bear and Newark on Monday night.
    
The Delaware Department of Transportation reports that fallen trees closed several roads but most have been reopened. The weather service expects a slow-moving cold front to bring strong thunderstorms to the region late Tuesday afternoon.
