Severe storms that ravaged parts of the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic - and claimed at least two lives - have passed, but the risk of flooding continues Wednesday.

Powerful thunderstorms that swept through CT are being blamed for at least two deaths and knocking out power to tens of thousands of customers.

Some extremely large hail, and strong damaging winds are likely with this line as are a couple of tornadoes as each storm shifts east and south.

A man was sitting in his truck when a tree fell on it, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton told FOX61.

"The flood concern going forward looks to be from Virginia up into Southern New Jersey where rainfall amounts could be 4-8 inches over the coming days with localized amounts exceeding 10 inches", CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.

An 11-year-old NY girl was killed when a large tree toppled onto the auto she was in.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of people remained without power in the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday after ferocious storms packing fierce winds and hail battered the region, killing three people.

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

The passengers were all on the upper vehicle and no one was in distress, Laxton said.

The Metro-North commuter railroad said Tuesday evening that downed trees across the tracks had caused it to suspend service on its Harlem, Hudson and New Haven lines.

Almost 500,000 customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Virginia were without power by late Thursday night, fewer power outages than earlier Tuesday, tracking service PowerOutage.us said.

Winds were moving at 70 miles per hour in the area at the time, according to the National Weather Service.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency in Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Sullivan counties.
