Severe storms hit Ohio, Pa., N.Y.; possible tornado reported

In the 30's deg C again today. According to USA Today newspaper, severe thunderstorms that spawned at least one possible tornado raked Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York this afternoon before rolling across other Mid-Atlantic and New England states.Chemung County (in south-central New York state) emergency officials said a tornado went through the middle of Elmira township, just after 4 p.m. No serious injuries have been reported. More than 120,000 utility customers are without power in the three states. New York City and Philadelphia were next in line to be hit, followed by southern New England.
