Woman killed by falling tree as storms hit Midwest, South
Her death occurred Wednesday as part of a multiday severe weather outbreak that caused tornadoes, powerful winds and huge hail in parts of the central and southern United States.
A confirmed weak tornado also caused damage Wednesday night in rural Greene County, Alabama. A day earlier, 23 people were injured in the central Texas town of Salado.
Tornadoes were also reported Tuesday in parts of Iowa and Minnesota. And a blizzard struck North Dakota this week, closing the state Capitol, schools, government offices and interstates.
