Severe Storms Leave Thousands Without Power In Connecticut

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.

In Monroe County, Pennsylvania, a 31-year-old man was killed when a tree fell on his vehicle, the county coroner's office said. "They could be live".

More than 80,000 power outages were reported across Connecticut Wednesday morning, according to Eversource.

The severe storms have ended, but more rain is expected in the region Wednesday. 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. The city and town of Newburgh are two different entities a few miles away from each other.

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. In Maryland, more than 60 water rescues were reported in Frederick County after over 6 inches of rain fell Tuesday.

Rainfall from the storm flooded roads, stranding motorists and train commuters. In Maryland, a commuter train was stranded in several feet of water, forcing people to move to the top level of the train auto. The line will reopen on Thursday, officials told news outlets.

A National Weather Service team will be traveling to Sullivan, New York, on Wednesday, where a possible tornado was reported.

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.

"There is still a lot of damage from the storms that rolled across the region yesterday", The National Weather Service in NY said in a tweet Wednesday.
