Restaurants on Liberty Street, where roofs were blown off of buildings, donated food to an impromptu community cookout that began on Wednesday night and lasted through Thursday.
Thursday evening, the community will also remember 11-year-old Gina Garzon, who was killed after a tree fell on her family's auto during the storm in a vigil at St. Patrick's Church in Newburgh.
Cuomo said Wednesday that falling trees in Newburgh claimed the lives of an 11-year-old girl in a parked auto and a woman who was driving.
Severe weather was also reported in New Jersey, Long Island, and New York City with wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour with some storms.
Cuomo, a Democrat, said there could be federal assistance, depending on the extent of the damage. In New York, falling trees in Newburgh claimed the lives of an 11-year-old girl in a parked vehicle and a woman who was driving. Most meteotsunamis are too small to notice.
Residents in these towns are still working to clean up after the storm.
More than 120,000 homes in New England lost power following the storm.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says the powerful storms that swept through CT caused extensive damage, and power won't likely be restored to some locations for days. Hail was reported to be as large as tennis balls in some parts of the Hudson Valley and CT.
At least three people were killed during Tuesday's storm.
In addition, the Weather Service says two tornadoes hit CT, where two people died. One in Bristol was on the ground for one and a half miles and had winds of 90 miles per hour. But there were no reports of damage from the abnormally high tides reported in areas from Perth Amboy in New Jersey to Delaware's Fenwick Island. A line of strong storms pushed across New York City and badly disrupted the evening commute, stranding thousands of train riders.
The first selectman of Southbury said much of the town is still without power with many roads blocked off. Concourses were packed with passengers waiting for service to resume.
