Violent storms killed one person in Texas on Tuesday as giant chunks of hail pelted communities and high winds knocked trees into power poles elsewhere in the South, the Associated Press reports.
Weather forecasters have warned to expect at least two days of violent weather.
“W. M. Soloman, 71, died when storm winds toppled a tree onto Solomon’s home in Whitehouse, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southeast of Dallas,” Whitehouse Mayor James Wansley told AP.
