A Severe Thunderstorm Warning in effect for the area expired at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday. A Flood Advisory was issued at 4 p.m. and expired at 6 p.m. Tuesday. Tornado warnings issued in parts of the area expired late in the afternoon.

The quick moving storms created a travel nightmare during the evening commute. In addition to downed trees and road closures, Metro-North suspended service on all three of its Hudson Valley lines late Tuesday.
