ROME, Ga. - The same storm system that's hammering Wisconsin is blamed for at least one death in Tennessee.

A 47-year-old man was killed when a tree fell on top of him in his trailer in nashville. Strong winds and thunderstorms also toppled trees at a mobile home park early this morning. There are reports of tornadoes in the region.

At least one person has also been killed after a fierce storm system came through northwest Georgia Wednesday morning, where a tornado was reported.

Earlier, severe weather ripped through parts of Arkansas, causing a lot of damage and power outages. The storm knocked down trees and power lines. A possible tornado may have touched down as well. The storm ripped the roof off several homes and businesses, smashed windows and scattered debris everywhere.
