Rain delay called for North Penn High graduation

This afternoon's thunderstorms prompt officials to call off the North Penn High School graduation ceremony.

Rain delay called for North Penn High graduation


Four years of toil, angst and homework, outdone by a thunderstorm.

Officials at North Penn School District in Lansdale called off tonight's graduation ceremony "to insure the safety of all students and families" in the face of a summer storm that has already brought at least an inch of rain, thunder, lightning and flash flood warnings.

Seniors will have to wait one more day to toss their caps in the air.  Here's hoping the air has cleared by then.

The graduation is now scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m.
