The National Weather Service has confirmed Tuesday's severe weather created five tornadoes in NY and ct.

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.

The agency determined a tornado with maximum wind speeds of 95 miles per hour traveled a 0.7-mile path through Winsted; another struck near the Barkhamsted Reservoir, but its wind speeds and path couldn't be determined.

The powerful storms that swept through New York's lower Hudson Valley spawned three tornadoes.

The cleanup is underway Wednesday in NY after severe storms ripped through the area, leaving a trail of destruction.

There is extensive cleanup going on in both states, as people deal with widespread power outages.

Unemployment rises to 5.6 per cent in April
The break-down of April series was encouraging too, with full-time jobs up 32,700 compared with a fall of 25,100 in March. However, disappointing unemployment rate paused the rise in the bond yields across the curve.

On Wednesday, the service confirmed two other tornadoes.

More than 157,000 utility customers in NY were without power midday Wednesday.

In Orange County, police said at 11-year-old girl was killed when the vehicle she was in was crushed by a tree on Robinson Avenue in Newburgh. According to the NWS, Brookfield experienced a Macroburst, not a tornado, with sustained winds of 100mph.

Two people in CT died as a result of Tuesday's storms.

The storms downed scores of trees and power lines. Roads in many towns were impassible and some schools canceled classes on Wednesday due to the damage.
