One killed as nor’easter brings snow, sleet, rain, high winds to region

Power lines wee brought down by strong winds, ice and snow

MID-HUDSON – High winds coupled with snow, sleet and rain downed power lines and knocked out electricity to thousands of residents of the Hudson Valley and Catskills and claimed one life on Friday as a nor’easter rolled into the region.

In Putnam Valley, high winds brought a large tree down onto a house on Dunderberg Road killing an 11-year-old boy.

Central Hudson, Orange and Rockland and NYSEG crews worked all night long to restore power to the tens of thousands of customers who were left in the dark.

Sullivan and Putnam counties declared states of emergency. Sullivan received several inches of snow and strong winds that brought down trees and power lines.

Putnam lost power to large areas of the county because of strong winds.
While areas of Dutchess, Ulster and Orange counties received heavy snow, the greater Middletown area was spared with just a dusting.
