Philly Sees Record Rainfall as Storms Roll Through

 PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia has set a record for one-day rainfall as strong storms rolled through the region.

The National Weather Service says 8.02 inches of rain fell in the city Sunday, shattering the previous record of 6.63 inches set during Tropical Storm Floyd on Sept. 16, 1999.

Heavy rains caused flash flooding, power outages and airport delays.

A spokeswoman for Philadelphia International Airport says some sections of Terminal A lost power for a few hours because of the storms and backup generators failed.

Flights were delayed, but the spokeswoman says all of the runways remained open during the outage.

 The soaking rains also flooded roads and caused traffic headaches. Drier weather is on the way just in time for the start of the workweek.
