Good Morning, Philadelphia: Bad night for trees

Staff photographer Clem Murray reports:

Heavy rains caused some damage around the Philadelphia region overnight including several downed trees.

In University City, 7-year-old Zahli Bhayroo - and his parents - got a surprise this morning when he came out of his University City house to go to Penn Alexander Elementary School and found that a tree limb had fallen on the family car.  Good thing the first-grader could walk to school because the car wasn't going anywhere this morning.

In Haverford Township, a tree fell across Burmont Road near Glendale at the start of rush hour. PECO and township officials were waiting for crews to clear the debris and reopen the roadway.

This is the second tree to fall across Burmont Road this week, according to Bob Kelly of the Haverford Township Tree Deptartment.
