Several storms will move through Western Pennsylvania early Thursday morning, while some people are still without power following Tuesday night's thunderstorms.

A line of storms moving through central Ohio is weakening and is expected to bring rain around 3 a.m., meteorologist Brad Rehak said. Storms developing behind that line will hit the region closer to daybreak, he said.

"We're not expecting it to be severe, just thunderstorms," he said

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for much of Western Pennsylvania, western Maryland, eastern Ohio and West Virginia.

About 400 Duquesne Light customers were still without power around 9:45 p.m. after thunderstorms that moved through the region Tuesday night, spokesman Joey Vallarian said.

The company received reports of 126 downed wires, 65 downed trees or tree limbs and nine broken utility poles, he said.

"Service is expected to be restored to all affected customers no later than 2 p.m. Thursday," Mr. Vallarian said.
