In Newburgh, N.Y., located about 60 miles north of Manhattan, an 11-year-old girl died when a tree fell on a auto she was in, the Mid-Hudson Valley Patch reported.

The 80-year-old woman was driving alone in a 2018 Hyundai during the powerful storm when a tree fell on top of her vehicle. The girl was extricated from the vehicle by the fire department and transported to St. Luke's Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Officials were notified of the accident in the Village of Chestnut Ridge just before 5 p.m. on Tuesday. A few hours later New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo would declare a state of emergency in several counties and deployed the New York National Guard.

Utility crews with Central Hudson Gas and Electricity were out in full force working to restore power.
