The National Weather Service (NWS) Storm Prediction Center has warned about a tornado watch for Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in southeastern Pennsylvania, Berks,Lehigh and Northampton counties in east central Pennsylvania and 15 counties in New Jersey, including Mercer and Monmouth in central New Jersey.
 
In some of these areas, the remnants left by Hurricane Ida are still being felt in the region.
 
The NWS warning was activated on Wednesday, Sept. 1 until 10 p.m., with the presence of severe thunderstorms. There was also a chance of scattered damaging winds with isolated 75 mph gusts.
 
The threat of flooding also grew with the warning, as periods of heavy rain and thunderstorms occurred throughout the afternoon and night.
 
Flooding of creeks and streams happened urban areas and areas with poor rainfall drainage.
 
"Flooding may occur on roads and structures in low-lying areas that are close to streams," the NWS warned. 

Ida 

The Category 4 cyclone, which passed through the Southern U.S. last week, has left extensive damage, loss, death and injury. 
 
In Louisiana, the last state to be hit by Ida, so far, there has been one reported death and more than a million people without electricity. 
 
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said a significant increase in the number of victims can be expected.
 
"We are still conducting search and rescue and we have people all over southeast Louisiana who are in complicated locations," he said.
 
After making landfall on Sunday, Aug. 29, Ida has now been downgraded to a Category 1 storm, causing major rainfall and flash flooding emergencies in the southeastern part of Louisiana.
 
Caldor Fire
 
Across the country, fire emergencies continue in California. 
 
On Monday, Aug. 30, an evacuation order was issued in South Lake Tahoe due to a wildfire progressing towards Lake Tahoe, which sits between California and Nevada.
 
By Wednesday, Sept. 1, the fire department reported progress saving communities at the south end of Lake Tahoe after the expected high temperatures were not met. 
 
So far, the Caldor Fire has burned nearly 312 square miles since it broke out on Aug. 14th and is 18% contained.
 
More than 600 structures have been destroyed and at least 33,000 more are threatened.
