Heavy rain, intense winds lead to power outages

Thousands of homes remained without power Sunday after intense winds and heavy rain left residents in the dark a day earlier.

Precipitation pummeled the region Saturday, taking out trees and power lines in its path of destruction.

Residents say they lost power at about 6 p.m. Saturday. Still, others like Dan Coyle are counting their blessings to have come unscathed by the falling trees.

?We were saved by the grace of God,? says Coyle.
