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

Hundreds of thousands of people remained without power in the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday after ferocious storms packing fierce winds and hail battered the region, killing three people.

Tuesday's storm brought down power lines, and at one point all four counties were under a tornado watch. In the City of Newburgh, New York, officials said an 11-year-old girl had just returned home with her mother and was unloading their SUV when the wind caused a large tree to topple into the vehicle, CBS New York reported.

A man in CT was killed when a tree fell on his truck, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton told the Hartford Courant.

State police say a tree fell on a vehicle in the neighboring town of New Fairfield, killing one person. The house was inaccessible from downed trees.

There were more than 100 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, the National Weather Service said. He was hurt when a dugout at a baseball field collapsed at Henry Abbott Technical High School. "AVOID all down trees and utility poles as they may still involve LIVE power lines", the Brookfield Police Department said on Facebook.

Airlines canceled and delayed flights in and out of the region. Concourses were packed with passengers waiting for service to resume.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was prepared to use state resources as he monitored the storm, the outlet reported.

Earlier in the day, upstate NY pounded by thunderstorms and baseball-size hail. The biggest threat for flooding will be from southern New Jersey to Virginia, where 4-8 inches of rain could fall with localized heavier amounts possible. 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.
