DEWITT, Ark. (AP) - Severe storms the moved across Arkansas are blamed for at least one death and flooding that’s closed roads in many areas.

Police say 65-year-old Julia Schwede was killed when a tree was blown into her home Saturday night.

Numerous roads were closed across much of northern Arkansas because of flooding as more than three inches of rain fell in some areas.

Also, Entergy Arkansas reported nearly 65,000 power outages Sunday morning and electric cooperatives around the state reported about 14,000 outages.

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, reported the storm system was moving eastward out of the state on Sunday, but flood warnings and watches remain in effect for much of the day.
