Over an inch-and-a-half of rain was measured officially in Philadelphia on Thursday — with half of that coming in a one hour period between 2 and 3 p.m.


The thunderstorms that roared the region and darkened the skies to end-of-the-world levels touched off some minor flooding, and some big traffic headaches.

A tree came down atop wires on busy Spring Mill Road, in Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, and another one was toppled onto wires in Wyebrook, Chester County.


Among several road-flooding reports posted by the National Weather Service, minor flooding was reported along the Black Horse Pike in South Jersey.

The East Branch of the Brandwyine Creek, in Chester County, went over its banks, as did Delaware’s Cristina River.

One thing that did survive the storms was the drought watch for southeastern Pennsylvania.

The state Department of Environmental Protection announced Thursday it would remain in effect. South Jersey’s also remains in effect.
