Miss. Woman Killed By Tree; Storms Cross Southeast

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA – Authorities say severe storms that rumbled across the Southeast killed one person, knocked out power to thousands and caused property damage in at least three states.

A coroner says a 46-year-old Laurel, Mississippi, woman was killed when a tree fell on her while she was standing outside her home Sunday in the southeastern part of the state. Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi reported some property damage.

Emergency officials say a tornado touched down near Crossville, Tenn., about 60 miles west of Knoxville. And authorities in Alabama and Georgia say several funnel clouds were spotted.

The storms also knocked out power to about 10,000 customers around the Atlanta-metro area. Most had been restored by 10 p.m. About 6,000 Alabama customers were in the dark for awhile.
