TUSHKA — Arkansas authorities say a seventh person has been reported killed in severe storms that ripped through the country's midsection.

St. Francis County Sheriff Bobby May says 64-year-old Lardelah Anderson died Friday morning when strong winds knocked her double-wide trailer from its moorings in the little eastern Arkansas community of Colt.


Anderson is the fifth person reported killed in Arkansas from the storms that tore across the state overnight. Two elderly sisters also were killed in Oklahoma.
