Girl in SUV crushed to death as storms pound Northeast”

Two people are dead after powerful storms marched across the state yesterday.

There were almost 50 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, it said.

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

Connecticut State Police also confirmed that someone in New Fairfield was killed after a tree landed on their vehicle. 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.

The National Weather Service had received more than 100 severe storm reports shortly after 6 p.m., including reports of baseball-size hail and wind gusts up to 80 miles per hour.

"I got off the subway at about 5:15, and there were hordes of people", said Jackie Berman, who was attempting to get home to Chappaqua, New York, from Grand Central.

The Brookfield Police Department said on its Facebook page that First Selectman Steve Dunn had "declared a town disaster".

Conditions were so bad in Newburgh that the city chose to close all roads due to the damage to trees and electrical infrastructure.

Amtrak service in the Northeast has also been canceled due to the storm, according to WABC-TV.

Severe weather event continues across the Northeast US. In New York City, where skies quickly turned ominous, thousands of commuters were stranded in Grand Central Terminal after rail lines were temporarily suspended due to downed trees on the tracks.

A tornado watch was issued this afternoon for upstate NY, the Hudson Valley, northeast Pennsylvania, western Connecticut, Massachusetts and southern Vermont.

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

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