Powerful, fast-moving tornadoes and storms roared through much of the Northeast on Tuesday night, killing at least five people and leaving hundreds of thousands without power.

Drenching rains and winds that reached 60 mph tore down trees and power lines, destroyed homes and ripped a roof off a central New York restaurant.

In rural Smithfield, N.Y., four people died when a tornado with winds in excess of 100 mph turned several homes into rubble. Many more homes were damaged, National Weather Service meteorologist Barbara Watson said Wednesday.

Madison County Sheriff Allen Riley identified the victims as a 35-year-old woman and her 4-month-old daughter, a 70-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man.

“Our thoughts are with the families,” the National Weather Service announced through its Binghamton, N.Y., office. “We will have multiple survey teams across central New York and NEPA (northeastern Pennsylvania) … to determine the cause of damage.”

A mother and daughter were among three who died in Smithfield, family members have told WTVH television in Syracuse.

More than 70,000 people remained without power in the state early Wednesday.

In Maryland, a tree fell at a summer camp during the storm, killing one child and injuring six others. More than 100 children at the River Valley Ranch camp in Manchester were headed to a shelter when a tree fell on them, authorities said.

“This is something that has never happened in our history,” said camp director Jon Bissett. “A freak storm came up. Obviously it was pretty traumatic for the campers. A lot of them were there when it happened.”

In Pennsylvania, more than 300,000 people lost power at the height of the storms. More than 135,000 homes and businesses remained without power Wednesday morning, including more than 74,000 in the five-county Philadelphia area.

In Vermont, Green Mountain Power reported more that 13,000 power customers lost power, though most power had been restored Wednesday morning.

But New York state drew the brunt of the weather system’s fury. Winds were so strong that they partially peeled the roof off of a bar and grill at the New York State Fairgrounds in East Syracuse, The Post-Standard in Syracuse reported. The restaurant is a popular during fairgrounds events, and staffers there are hoping they can repair it in time for a classic car show that starts next Friday, New York State Fairgrounds spokesman Dave Bullard told the Post-Standard.
