Three confirmed dead after severe storms in the Northeast

Deadly Winds Sweep Across Northeast Killing at Least Two

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

The man, who has not been identified, was killed when a tree fell on the truck in which he was sitting in Danbury's Candlewood Lake area.

The Governor of NY Andrew Cuomo (Andrew Cuomo) has declared a state of emergency in the counties of Putnam, Sullivan and Dutchess County now. The severe threat ended overnight into Wednesday.

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. Police in Newburg said the girl and her mother had arrived home and were unloading the auto when strong winds knocked the tree onto the vehicle. Hundreds of thousands of residents remain without electricity.

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. Lightning strikes and fallen electrical wires led to fires in New Jersey.

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

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

At Grand Central Station in NY, line service for Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven were suspended due to the storms, the station's Twitter feed said.

Much of the ferocity of the storms had dissipated by 10:30 p.m. ET but flash flood warnings were still in effect for eastern Maryland, Delaware, and southern New Jersey, where rain continued to be heavy, said Frank Pereira, a meteorologist with the NWS. The line will reopen on Thursday, officials told news outlets.

But more rain is expected to fall in the comings days into already saturated soils and cause more flooding. Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will fuel downpours that result in rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches across other parts of the Southeast and eventually into the Northeast.
