Union Parish Sheriff Dusty Gates reports that around 5 p.m. Monday that a large tree was blown across a residence on Pilgrims Rest Church Road north of Spearsville killing 45-year-old Misty Thurmon.
A heavy line of thunderstorms with high winds were moving through the parish at the time, Gates said.
