PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Heavy rain from a storm prompted calls to evacuate and water rescues in the area surrounding Philadelphia and high winds partially tore the roof off a daycare center on the grounds of a suburban hospital, but no injuries were immediately reported.

Bucks County government officials said in a Twitter post that high winds around Doylestown Hospital partially tore the roof off the daycare center at Children’s Village, a private preschool on the hospital grounds, and overturned vehicles in the parking lot.
