LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Officials in Malvern say a man was killed when a tree fell on his house during a thunderstorm.

Severe storms raked Arkansas on Thursday, and Hot Spring County emergency officials said Friday a man died when one passed through Malvern. A young girl in the home survived.

The bad weather knocked over trees and power lines in many areas of the state, cutting power to 60,000 homes and businesses. Winds exceeded 60 mph in some locations, and forecasters issued numerous tornado warnings from Little Rock eastward.

The National Weather Service said the control tower at Little Rock National Airport was evacuated briefly as a storm possibly containing a tornado passed by before entering eastern Arkansas. The Little Rock National Airport said seven flights were either canceled or diverted.
