The National Weather Service has confirmed four tornadoes touched down during thunderstorms that pounded the Hudson Valley Tuesday, on both sides of the river.

They determined that an EF-1 tornado, with winds up to 110 miles per hour, carved a 9.5 mile path between Beacon Falls and Hamden, Connecticut. According to the NWS, Brookfield experienced a Macroburst, not a tornado, with sustained winds of 100mph. A second EF1 tornado with peak winds of 100 miles per hour moved along a 4 ½ mile path between Southbury and Oxford.

National Weather Service officials are trying to confirm whether any tornadoes touched down.

Eversource is reporting that there are still 98 percent of customers without power in Southbury.

A microburst hit New York's Westchester County, downing trees in an estimated 250-yard area.

The NWS completed a storm survey of the damage Wednesday night.

Cuomo, a Democrat, said there could be federal assistance, depending on the extent of the damage. Hail was reported to be as large as tennis balls in some parts of the Hudson Valley and CT.

(NOTE:) Above reports are filtered to display the events within the News 12 viewing area. A "meteotsunami" or meteorological tsunami is a tsunami-like wave caused by air-pressure disturbances, such as severe thunderstorms.

It could take days to fully restore power in Newburgh after a tornado slammed the city during Tuesday's powerful and deadly weather, the mayor says. Most meteotsunamis are too small to notice. An 11-year-old NY girl was killed when a large tree toppled onto the auto she was in.

Roads in many towns were impassible and some schools canceled classes on Wednesday due to the damage.
