Three confirmed dead after severe storms in the Northeast

And in the nearby town of New Fairfield, a falling tree killed one person, police there said.

More than 157,000 utility customers in NY were without power midday Wednesday.

Cardinale was heading home from work Tuesday on Church Street when a tree and all of its branches crumbled on top of his truck. The girl and her mother had arrived home on Robinson Avenue in Newburgh at about 4:15 p.m. and were unloading the auto when police say the wind caused a large tree to topple onto the vehicle.

The vehicle's only occupant, the driver, an 80-year-old woman from Chestnut Ridge was transported to Nyack Hospital.




An 11-year-old NY girl was killed when a large tree toppled onto the vehicle she was in with her mother in Newburgh. The mother suffered minor injuries.

The storms downed trees and power lines across the region and lightning strikes led to structure fires in New Jersey and Massachusetts, AP reports.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday night on Twitter 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". Baseball-sized hail has been reported in upstate NY, as well as high flood waters.

In New York City, the subway system and the Metro-North railroad reported delays and temporary suspensions.
