PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The storm led to some scary moments for residents in South Philadelphia.
A tree came down on parked cars and brought power lines with it.
Ice was the culprit behind the mess on 6th and Carpenter Streets.
The Philadelphia Fire Department arrived, followed by PECO crews cordoning of the area and turning off the power of the snapped lines.
“I was happy that was got a parking spot right in front of the house,” said Tom Rosenthal, who owns the crushed car.
Rosenthal recently paid off his vehicle.
“I’m sitting down there, and I hear all these loud noises, and I look out the window and I see blue sparks flying and next thing I know I come up here and I see all this,” he said.
No one was hurt despite the damage.
