Man killed in Danbury during severe storm

The house was inaccessible from downed trees.

There were almost 50 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, it said.

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

Connecticut State Police also confirmed that someone in New Fairfield was killed after a tree landed on their auto.

An 11-year-old girl was killed in Newburgh, New York, by a falling tree, while her mother suffered minor injuries.

Much of the ferocity of the storms had dissipated by 10.30pm on Tuesday (Eastern Time) but flash flood warnings were still in effect for eastern Maryland, Delaware and southern New Jersey, where rain continued to be heavy, said Frank Pereira, a meteorologist with the NWS.

Rescuers had to take a boat to get to the victim, Boughton said.
