TULL, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say a driver died when strong winds knocked a tree onto his car in rural Arkansas as thunder storms and several tornadoes swept through the Midwest.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office says the man was killed late Thursday in Tull, 30 miles southwest of Little Rock.

The National Weather Service says up to a dozen tornadoes touched down in Arkansas and Oklahoma on Thursday, injuring nine people and damaging several structures.

More bad weather is on tap for Friday.

Forecasters say large hail and tornadoes are likely in Oklahoma and parts of the Ozarks in Arkansas and Missouri. The areas at greatest risk include Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Joplin, Mo., where the second-deadliest American tornado on record killed at least 158 people in 2011.
