WASHINGTON (AP) -- Authorities say the violent storms that swept across the eastern U.S. have left at least five people dead.
Anne Arundel County, Md., police said in a news release Saturday that 25-year-old Kevin Obrien was killed when a tree fell onto his car late Friday. Two other people in the car suffered minor injuries.
The storms also left two others dead in Virginia. In New Jersey, two young cousins were killed when a tree fell on their tent at a park.
The storms have left thousands without power -- and without air conditioning -- on a day that temperatures are expected to reach triple digits across the eastern U.S.
