PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Strong thunderstorms rolling through the region are causing a lot of problems.

PECO is reporting more than 45,000 customers are without power on this sweltering evening, with Chester County looking like the hardest hit area: More than 24,000 homes and businesses there are in the dark.

It's a similar story in New Jersey where more than 12,000 PSEG customers lost electricity.

There is localized flooding in some low-lying places as well.
