Fundraiser started for family hit by Smithfield tornado

An online fundraiser has been started for the family of the woman and infant daughter killed when a tornado destroyed their central New York home this week.
 
A relative started the effort on gofundme.com for the parents and 11-year-old daughter of Kim Hilliard.

Hilliard and her baby, 4-month-old Paris Newman, were killed when the tornado touched down in the rural Madison County town of Smithfield.

Two people living in separate homes also were killed, including a 70-year-old woman who was related to Hilliard.

The online fundraiser has raised $22,000 as of this morning.
