A man was killed by a fallen tree in the storms that moved through east Texas over the weekend, authorities said Sunday.

Following a tornado that brought 100-mph winds, rescue crews arrived at a home Saturday and found Larry Hadnot Jr., 44, "trapped by a tree that had fallen across a home," Nacogdoches County Judge Greg Sowell said in a statement.

A second person in the home suffered minor injuries, the judge said.

Hadnot's death was the 10th blamed on weather in the US since Friday night: Two other people died in Texas, one in Oklahoma, three in Louisiana, and three in Alabama.

Widespread power outages

Nacogdoches County is one of many locales experiencing downed trees, storm damage, and power outages from the deadly system that hammered much of the eastern half of the country.

About 50 million people in the Northeast are under wind advisories, as gusts are predicted to reach 50 mph or higher in some areas.

Early Sunday, more than 145,000 homes were without power in eight states, according to poweroutage.us. More than half the homes were in New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
