Violent storms swept across the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. over the weekend, killing at least 13 people and leaving more than 3 million people without power. The storms caused damage from Indiana to New Jersey, although most of the damage was concentrated in West Virginia, Washington D.C., suburban Virginia, and Maryland. Electricity will likely not be restored for several days, which could prove even more problematic because the region has been experiencing 100-degree temperatures.
