An un­usual fall thun­der­storm which moved across the Delaware Val­ley Sun­day evening brought down trees and knocked out power in Rad­nor, East­town and Tredyf­frin. Rad­nor was hit the hard­est with nu­mer­ous streets blocked by down trees. Rad­nor Town­ship Public Works crews worked through the evening clear­ing blocked streets.

A car was re­ported struck on Mill Road as well as a car damaged on the 100 block of West Lan­caster av­enue.

By Mon­day morn­ing only three lo­ca­tions were still im­pas­si­ble as crews worked with PECO crews to open roads. They were Con­estoga Road be­tween Ithan and Mill, Mid­land and Pem­broke and Ivan Av­enue.

Justin Don­ahue was out sur­vey­ing the dam­age on Ivan av­enue early Mon­day morn­ing as util­ity crews worked to clear a tree that had knocked out power in the neigh­bor­hood. Don­ahue said he lost power in his home shortly af­ter 6 p.m. as the storm went through Wayne, how­ever a back-up gen­er­a­tor he owns, was run­ning. PECO told him he’d have power back by 11 a.m.

In East­town, a tree blocked Water­loo Road at Su­gar­town road. Of­fi­cials also re­ported a num­ber of other trees down through­out the town­ship.

Tredyf­frin po­lice re­ported a downed wire block­ing Lan­caster Av­enue dur­ing rush hour and a num­ber of other trees down, which public works crews cleared.


A fallen tree in a yard on Mid­land Av­enue in Wayne caused no dam­age fol­low­ing a Sun­day evening thun­der­storm. Power out­ages were re­ported af­ter nu­mer­ous trees were brought down by the storm in Rad­nor, Tredyf­frin and East­town town­ships.


Justin Don­ahue and his daugh­ter, Ella, watch as crews re­pair power lines on Iven Av­enue Mon­day morn­ing fol­low­ing a thun­der­storm on Sun­day that knocked down nu­mer­ous trees in Rad­nor, Tredyf­frin and East­town town­ships. Don­ahue said he lost power to his home as a re­sult of the downed trees and power lines.
