2 dead, thousands without power after storms strike

Powerful storms pounded the Northeast on Tuesday with torrential rain and marble-sized hail, leaving at least four people dead and hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses without power.

"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.

A man who had been mowing his lawn and sought refuge in his truck was killed when a tree fell on the vehicle in Danbury, Connecticut, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said, according to the Hartford Courant newspaper.

State police say a tree fell on a auto in the neighboring town of New Fairfield, killing one person.

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

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

"New York has once again withstood the fury of Mother Nature and now is the time for the state and our local partners to get communities throughout the Mid-Hudson region up and running again", Cuomo said.

Schools canceled classes or delayed opening on Wednesday. The house was inaccessible from downed trees.

Damage to train tracks from severe weather has suspended Brunswick, Maryland's MARC's Brunswick Line service.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was prepared to use state resources as he monitored the storm, the outlet reported.

Much of the east coast from North Georgia up through Pennsylvania and New Jersey will likewise see rain in the next three days. Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will fuel downpours that result in rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches across other parts of the Southeast and eventually into the Northeast.
