Many are cleaning up Thursday after wicked weather wreaked havoc up and down the East coast and beyond.

Storms knocked out power to thousands in the mid-Atlantic region and New York, caused millions of dollars in damage, and killed at least two people.

"Commuter rail service between Newark, N.J., and New York City was briefly suspended due to overhead wire damage," New Jersey Transit said.

In Connecticut, the storm knocked down trees and flooded streets near the shore. More than 20,000 customers lost power, according to Connecticut Light & Power.

In New Jersey, a man was killed and his wife was injured when a tree toppled and struck their car, according to West Milford police.

Two inches of rain caused a rock slide in Tennessee and a 130-mile-per-hour twister destroyed more than 50 homes in an Atlanta, Ga. suburb.

Police said an Atlanta, one resident died after a tree fell on the car he was driving. They believe strong wind gusts blew the tree over.

Some areas could also see up to 18 inches of snow.
