Here's how you can help the family who lost an 11-year-old Hudson Valley girl during a tornado in Newburgh, just days after he first communion.

On Tuesday around 4:15 p.m., Gina Garzon, 11, of Newburgh was killed when a large tree fell on an SUV parked behind a multi-family home on Robinson Lane in the City of Newburgh.

Gina was helping her mother unpack their car during the storm outside their Newburgh home when tornado strength wind gusts knocked over a tree. The tree fell onto an SUV, trapping Gina inside.

The mother suffered minor injuries.

This incident is being investigated by the City of Newburgh Detective Division as well as the Orange County Medical Examiners Officer.
