A 41-year-old Chattanooga woman was killed today when a tree fell on her doublewide trailer, authorities said.

She is the only storm-related fatality reported so far in the Chattanooga area.

Mai Crumley lived at 6136 Tall Pine Lane in the Shepherd neighborhood near the airport, authorities said.

Her husband and young son were in the house when the tree crashed down about 3:30 p.m., but they were in a closet while she was in the living room, police said.
