A Wynanstkill man is accused of a wild, violent rampage on a flight recently in which the enraged passenger is alleged to have fought with flight attendants and law enforcement during a thwarted attempt to storm the cockpit mid-flight.
A lightning strike at Madison Square Park in Poughkeepsie took down 5 people this afternoon at about 4:15.
Three of the 5 people who were struck were injured so badly they were unresponsive when medics arrived.
According to reports they were not directly struck by the lightning but were standing by a bench under a tree that was struck when the charge from the lightning conducted through the ground
I wanted to do this just to give credit for all of the people who responded to my request for photos of the storm this past weekend. My old neighbor is included in this song. Their tree came dangerously close to both of our houses (mostly his - thank God they're alright!)
The current weather isn’t just frigid, but it is also dangerous with the vicious wind chill. The threat of hypothermia and frostbite is very real.
Overnight temperatures will be -6 to -10F with wind chills of -20 to -30F.
Thursday temperatures will reach 22F, but not until later in the day...
