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

A powerful storm system pummeled the Northeast on Tuesday with drenching rain, golf-ball-sized hail and damaging winds, leaving at least two people dead and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses. There were almost 50 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, it said.

In Danbury, one man was sitting in his truck as the storm approached when a tree fell on his truck.

Two people died in NY state, including an 11-year-old girl, when trees fell.

According to 22News' sister station, WTEN, an 11-year-old girl in Newburgh, New York was also killed when the wind caused a large tree to fall onto the vehicle the girl and her mother were unloading. "AVOID all down trees and utility poles as they may still involve LIVE power lines", the Brookfield Police Department said on Facebook.

Boughton asked that state residents remain indoors for the duration of the evening.

The storms brought down trees that blocked roads and forced school closures and delays.

The weather also stranded thousands of commuters Tuesday in Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal after all of the Metro-North rail lines were suspended due to downed trees on the tracks. Several lightning strikes led to structure fires in New Jersey and MA.

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

There were more than 100 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, the National Weather Service said. Concourses were packed with passengers waiting for service to resume. The line will reopen on Thursday, officials told news outlets.

Much of the East will see rain in the next three days.
