A teacher from the Hudson Valley is one of two people who were killed during violent storms in Connecticut. She's the fourth person from the Hudson Valley killed in Tuesday's storm.

Lauren Svendsen, an art teacher at the North Salem School District, was killed in New Fairfield, Connecticut when a tree fell on her car during severe thunderstorms, ABC reports.

Her three-year-old son was in the car but wasn't injured.

Grief counselors and a crisis team are on hand at the North Salem schools this week to help students and staff.

Svendsen was part of the FitBody community in Brewster.

"Lauren was a daughter, a mom, a fiancé, an art teacher and friend who always had a smile on her face," FitBody By Krista wrote on a GoFundMe for Svendsen's family. "Lauren joined our fitness studio last December. Lauren left an imprint with us at FitBody and she will forever be missed."

The GoFundMe was started to help Lauren's family.
