@Butrflynet,
Is there a legend for that map? I don't know what the different colors mean.

@Lustig Andrei,
Looks like the pink, yellow, green, and reds are where the worst are expected.

@Lustig Andrei,
Sorry, we had thunder and lightning overhead so I shut down the computer immediately after posting that.

It is from the Weather Underground website and is there severe weather map.

You can view the legend here:

Storms knock out power as they rip through Northeast - CNN.com

(CNN) -- Storms ripped through the Northeast, killing at least one person as they unleashed strong winds and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of customers.

Severe thunderstorm watches were in effect at one point Thursday evening for a continuous stretch from Oklahoma through New Jersey.

The danger could lurk for several hours as the National Weather Service issued such warnings in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Kentucky, Virginia, Arkansas and other points in between.

Well before then, the system had already packed a punch.

In Pennsylvania, a tree crushed a woman in her car as she sought shelter at a campsite, killing her, said Glenn Dunn, the emergency management coordinator for Potter County.

Witnesses reported trees in the region buckling under the impact.

"The trees were bending sideways, (and) the sky just went really dark and green," said Mark Ventrini, a photographer, as he headed toward Belmar, New Jersey. "Some of the storms were pretty intense."

The weather service had received reports of possible tornadoes touching down in Elmira, New York and Brookville, Pennsylvania.

Emergency managers in Broome County, New York, reported people trapped inside a home because of downed trees in the town of Vestal.

Strong storms also caused damage in Binghamton, New York, but the weather service said no injuries or fatalities have been reported.

The residual and more widespread damage came in the form of extensive power outages. More than 100,000 First Energy customers in Pennsylvania didn't have electricity Thursday night while other utilities such as PECO and PPL reporting tens of thousands of others similarly in the dark.

An hour earlier, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a news release stating there were nearly 95,000 customers without power in that state, mostly NYSEG and Central Hudson customers.

"The brunt of the storm itself was intense but short -- there was very strong rain and wind for about 15 minutes, at which point the rain cleared and the lightning show began," said Matthew Burke, a CNN iReporter who photographed lightning sprawling across the New York City skyline.

CNN's Greg Botelho, Lila King, Julie Cannold and Dominique Dodley contributed to this report.

We've been enjoying some pleasant climate here in Northern California. No wonder my wife loves it here!

@cicerone imposter,
I had to bring the puppies in, starting to get a nice little thunder storm! We needed the rain, haven’t had much the past week.

Thunder here and a little rain. It's quiet now, though and a bit still steamy.

@MMarciano,
(hahaha ...scented candles)

Started here with a venegeance at 3pm. We lost power about 3:30 for 30 seconds. Went on and off twice. This one was super intense, I know for a fact that this storm passed over head 'cause the intense lightning and thunder had no lag. One or two of these vivid bolts had that distinct crack that shook the walls and windows. At the same time ...we had hail pelting windows, high winds and horiziontal torrerential rains for about 30 mins and staying power. Carried on about 1.5 hrs. then it cleared up...only to come back again. Now we have round 2...more normal thunder and steady rain.

Dog rolled his eyes at me ...drooling buckets.

@Ragman,
I live in a country where it is either hot or wet and hot. No excitement when it comes to weather. Although thunder sometimes can be loud enough to wake up the dead.

@the prince,
Nice seeing you around again, Prince. Love your music!

BTW, I talk daily with a UK friend in Bournemouth who keeps me informed about their daily weather. She's not been a happy summer camper until now, so she says. She said it was their coldest wettest late spring-summer (May-June, early July) in decades.

@MMarciano,
With youngsters and dogs in the house, and a dude who falls asleep at the drop of a hat after 7 pm, you folks don't want to be using candles during power outages. Too much of a fire hazard.

Get a couple packs of these for $20 a pack, a bunch of AAA batteries from Home Depot and put a couple in each room for use during outages.

The worst that can happen with these is they get left on all night and the batteries need replacement.

@Butrflynet,
Thanks! Yes we do need something like that. You never think of those things until you need them. Our power was only out for about an hour but the street lights have been out all night and still out this morning. Strange.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Three areas that could affect Florida at some point in the future are brewing in the tropics, and one is almost certain to become a tropical cyclone in the next day or two.

A well-defined low pressure system midway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles is showing signs of organization as it moves west at about 15 mph. Conditions appear conducive for this to become a cyclone in the next day or two. If it develops it would be called Gordon. Models put it into the eastern Caribbean in a few days.

The remains of Tropical Storm Florence remain of slight concern. Forecasters give this area north-northwest of the Leeward Islands a 10 percent chance of developing into a cyclone in the next 48 hours.

Meanwhile, a new area of concern is emerging off the west coast of Africa. It has a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days.
