Storm was hot long before Halle Berry. Although being portrayed by arguably the hottest actress on the planet has obviously made her more famous, Storm has been a favorite of comic fans for decades. Storm was created in 1975 by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her powers included flight and the ability to control and manipulate the elements. When these powers manifested themselves, she was worshipped as a goddess in her African homeland before journeying to America to join the X-Men.

The last storm, which came from the northeast, resulted from a low- pressure system about 300 miles offshore; this low-pressure system, which comes from the south, will be much closer to land.

The storm also knocked out power to about 120,000 Philadelphia Electric Co. customers.
