Her 3-year-old child who was also in the auto was not hurt.

Weather officials say they're investigating other potential tornadoes in Putnam and Orange counties. Officials said a man was killed in Danbury when a tree fell on his truck.

The man, who has not been identified, was killed when a tree fell on the truck in which he was sitting in Danbury's Candlewood Lake area. Most meteotsunamis are too small to notice.

The cleanup is underway throughout the Northeast a day after powerful storms pounded the region with torrential rain and marble-sized hail, leaving at least three people dead and hundreds of thousands of customers without power. Police in Newburg said the girl and her mother had arrived home and were unloading the auto when strong winds knocked the tree onto the vehicle.

The National Weather Service confirmed a man in Danbury, Connecticut and an 11-year-old girl in Newburgh, New York died Tuesday due to fallen trees.

Almost 500,000 customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Virginia were without power by late Tuesday night, fewer power outages than earlier Tuesday, tracking service PowerOutage.us said.
