SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman who was killed during a storm at Lake Poinsett in eastern South Dakota.

The Hamlin County Sheriff's Office says 63-year-old Deborah Larson, of Sioux Falls, died Friday night when winds lifted the mobile home she was in and dropped it to the ground. Larson had sought shelter in the home's bathtub.

The storm damaged or destroyed numerous trees and homes throughout the area.
