Powerful Northeast Storms Kill Two, Snarl Commutes, Knock Out Power to Thousands

An 11-year-old girl in NY was killed when strong winds sent a tree crashing onto the auto she was unloading with her mother. A man living near Candlewood Lake was killed when a tree came down right on top of him.

Conditions were so bad in Newburgh that the city made a decision to close all roads due to the damage to trees and electrical infrastructure.

As of Wednesday morning over 350,000 customers were without power in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and CT.

The severe threat will likely pass by about 9 p.m.

At least five people, including an 11-year-old girl, were killed by falling trees resulting from severe weather on Tuesday.

A woman, 58, died after a tree fell on her vehicle in the town of Newburgh, New York, said Lt. James Nenni with the police department.

Airlines canceled and delayed flights in and out of the region.

Downed trees and utility poles impacted MA as well, though the severity did not reach the level reported in other northeast regions.

Service on one of the busiest train lines in the Northeast has been suspended due to the weather.

In New York's Grand Central Station, thousands were stranded when the Metro North railroad was shut down Tuesday evening. The line will reopen on Thursday, officials told news outlets.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency in several counties in southeast New York and deployed members of the New York National Guard to assist with the recovery.

A tornado watch was issued this afternoon for upstate NY, the Hudson Valley, northeast Pennsylvania, western Connecticut, Massachusetts and southern Vermont.

Areas from Virginia up into Southern New Jersey could see anywhere between 4 to 8 inches of rainfall, with localized amounts exceeding 10 inches.
