Although Wednesday started off as a perfect spring day, severe weather moved quickly through our area in the evening.

Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for several counties by the National Weather Service as heavy rain and lighting made its way through.

Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties were under a severe thunderstorm warning at point, while other areas reported lightning and heavy rain.
