Officials: Tuesday’s storm was worst Newburgh has seen
Crews are continuing to survey the damage in hard-hit Newburgh, where a tornado ripped through the area on Tuesday.
Officials so far say they have identified 50 buildings with significant damage. Six of them have been deemed unsafe for families to live in.
Cellphone video captured the worst of the storm, as winds up to 85 mph were seen ripping off roofs and tearing apart brick buildings.
Officials there are calling it the worst storm the city has ever seen.
The storm also wiped out power to nearly the entire city of Newburgh. Electrical repairs are expected to continue through the weekend.
