11-year-old girl in NY died when a vehicle under the influence of wind crashed into a tree. Two other people were killed in CT in separate incidents when trees fell on their vehicles, local media reported.

Schools canceled classes or delayed opening on Wednesday.

Mark Boughton, the Mayor Danbury, Connecticut confirmed via Twitter a man was killed in his pickup truck while trying to wait out the storm.

The Governor of NY Andrew Cuomo (Andrew Cuomo) has declared a state of emergency in the counties of Putnam, Sullivan and Dutchess County now.

Downed trees and utility poles impacted MA as well, though the severity did not reach the level reported in other northeast regions. The severe threat ended overnight into Wednesday. "AVOID all down trees and utility poles as they may still involve LIVE power lines", the Brookfield Police Department said on Facebook. Several lightning strikes led to structure fires in New Jersey and MA.

All of the Metro North lines have been suspended due to downed trees, leading to a frenzy at Grand Central Station in New York City during rush hour on Tuesday. Concourses were packed with passengers waiting for service to resume.

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

The tracks of the Maryland Rail Commuter train appeared to have gone down after a drainage culvert collapsed, county emergency management spokeswoman Vivian Laxton said. The line will reopen on Thursday, officials told news outlets.

More rain is expected over the next few days, with potential flooding through Saturday.

Areas from Virginia up into Southern New Jersey could see anywhere between 4 to 8 inches of rainfall, with localized amounts exceeding 10 inches.
