"Please be aware that there are hundreds of downed trees, utility poles and electrical lines".

An 11-year-old girl was killed on Tuesday afternoon when strong winds caused a tree to fall on a parked auto in Newburgh, New York, the Daily Freeman newspaper in Kingston, N.Y., reported. "They could be live".

There were more than 100 reports of hail in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and CT, the National Weather Service said.

Connecticut State Police also confirmed that someone in New Fairfield was killed after a tree landed on their vehicle.

And more heavy rainfalls are headed for the Northeast, with moisture this morning stretching from Florida into the mid-Atlantic.

"The flood concern going forward looks to be from Virginia up into Southern New Jersey where rainfall amounts could be 4-8 inches over the coming days with localized amounts exceeding 10 inches", CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said. Rescuers had to cut part of the vehicle to save the child, but failed. The city and town of Newburgh are two different entities a few miles away from each other. In Danbury, Connecticut, one person died after a tree fell on his truck. In Maryland, a commuter train was stranded in several feet of water, forcing people to move to the top level of the train vehicle.
