Hudson Valley man believed to be dead of CO poisoning
Carbon monoxide poisoning is being suspected in the death of a Hudson Valley man today.
Hazmat teams responded to a call at 19 Wilshire Drive in Chestnut Ridge just after 12:45 p.m.
When they arrived, crews found Norman Durham dead inside a bedroom.
Officials believe the death may have been caused by the carbon monoxide from the generator left in his closed garage. The generator was left running because he didn't have power in the home from the storm.
According to officials, the carbon monoxide levels were 70 times above safe levels in the home.
So far, four other people across the Hudson Valley have been killed because of storm-related injuries.
