Severe storms have been barreling through our area Thursday night knocking down trees and utility poles.

It's forced some roads in our areas to shut down.

69 News was in Bethlehem Thursday night as crews closed the 100 block of Shimersville Road because of downed wires.

There's no word when that road will be reopening.

We also received this video of the heavy rain and wicked winds from a viewer in East Allen Township, Northampton County.
