Double rainbow brightens aftermath of powerful storm
A quick-moving, powerful storm swept through Lancaster County last night, leaving its mark with downed trees and branches and leaving hundreds in the Ephrata area without power &tstr; although they were treated to a bright, rare double rainbow and a dramatic sunset in the aftermath.
The storm, part of a line of violent weather moving through the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, struck the area shortly after 7:30 p.m.
As of Wednesday morning, a couple hundred PPL customers were without power, including 169 in Clay Township, 25 in East Cocalico, eight in West Cocalico, two in Ephrata Township, and 1 in Denver borough.
The Borough of Ephrata Electric Division also was impacted.
An official said that one circuit was out due to falling branches. That is located along Route 272 through the Steinmetz Road area. Some traffic signals were affected for a time.
It is not clear how many customers were impacted or how long the outage lasted.
Some phone and cable service was also disrupted, but details were not available at press time.
