Powerful thunderstorms plowed through the Mid-Atlantic region last night, leaving 400,000 in eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey without power. The National Weather Service is investigating the possibility of tornadoes, with 71 mph winds clocked at the Philadelphia airport and 75 mph winds measured in Gloucester County, New Jersey. The PATCO Speedline, New Jersey Transit, and Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority are experiencing delays and suspended lines.

In New York, Maryland, and D.C., however, the early evening storm gave rise to otherworldly sunsets. Jeva Lange
