severe weather storm clouds

Deadly Front Pounds Region

An extremely strong frontal weather system made its way through the Hudson Valley Catskill region yesterday, with deadly consequences.  In Newburgh, tornadic force winds ripped a roof off a home which landed on a vehicle injuring one and claiming a child according to sources.  Many are still without power from toppled and snapped trees.  Downed powers lines could make for a treacherous situation in neighborhoods as crews attempt to make repairs. NWS will be in and around the county to assess damages with the aid of Orange County Emergency Management. This is a video of just after the storm front passed through over Washingtonville NY looking north and panning east towards Newburgh. A pretty ominous looking sky.
