Power outages linger as US Northeast recovers from deadly storm

New York. The Metro North commuter railroad said Tuesday evening that downed trees across the tracks had caused it to suspend service on its Harlem Hud

Two people are dead and almost half a million customers in the Northeast are without power due to severe weather that includes thunderstorms, flash flooding, hail, winds up to 80 miles per hour and possibly tornadoes.

Nickel to golf ball-sized hail and a possible tornado were also reported from southern MA through Pennsylvania and into parts of Virginia.

The storms capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes appear to be over for now.

The severe storms have ended, but more rain is expected in the region Wednesday.

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

In Connecticut and NY, the storms turned deadly.

Hours after the storms knocked down power lines and trees across the region, some 360,000 customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and West Virginia were without power, tracking service PowerOutage.us said.

An 11-year-old girl died in Newburgh, New York, when a large tree fell on the vehicle she was in, police said. Falling trees also killed two people in CT in separate incidents, as well as a person in Pennsylvania, local media reported. In Maryland, more than 60 water rescues were reported in Frederick County after over 6 inches of rain fell Tuesday.

Hundreds of people across the state are without power this morning.

The passengers were all on the upper vehicle and no one was in distress, Laxton said. The line will reopen on Thursday, officials told news outlets.

There were more than 100 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, the National Weather Service said.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Twitter Tuesday night that he was declaring a state of emergency in Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Sullivan counties and "deploying members of the New York National Guard to assist with recovery operations". An official said it could take days to get the power back on.
