SMITHFIELD, N.Y. (AP) — Utility crews are working to restore power in some Eastern states hit by severe storms earlier in the week, and one rural New York town is picking through the debris from homes battered by a deadly tornado.

A total of five people died in Tuesday's strong storms that blew down buildings, trees and utility lines and left hundreds of thousands without power into early Thursday.

About 14,000 utility customers across New York were still without power Thursday. In Pennsylvania, where more than 350,000 customers lost power at the peak of the storms, 16,400 were still without electricity almost two days after the storms.

In New York, four people were killed in the rural town of Smithfield, between Utica and Syracuse. In Manchester, Maryland, a tree fell at the River Valley Ranch summer camp, killing one child and injuring six others headed to a shelter.
