CAMDEN, Del. (AP) - Heavy rains swept across Delaware, damaging about 10 homes in Kent County and leaving many without power.

The storm Monday afternoon ripped siding and shingles from homes in Camden and caused small trees to snap. Camden-Wyoming Fire Chief Tom Rigsby says four homes were seriously damaged.

Many residents in the county also lost power after the storm.

Jeremy Tucker, a spokesman for Delaware Electric Cooperative, says about 1,200 were without power. As of 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, only 10 outages were reported in the county. Meanwhile, Delmarva Power was reporting only one outage in Kent County and about 250 in New Castle County.
