— A 2-year-old girl died at a north Louisiana RV park overnight after a large tree crushed the RV in which she was sleeping.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office, it happened about 12:30 a.m. Saturday at Hill Crest Mobile Home & RV Park on Highway 80 in Haughton.

A large tree fell on a recreational vehicle around 12:30 a.m. Saturday where the girl was sleeping. Four adults and a 15-month old also in the RV at the time were not injured.

The same weather to blame for the 2-year-old's death is moving into the New Orleans metro Saturday.

The strong line of storms could produce wind gusts of up to 70 mph, up to quarter-sized hail, and a few tornadoes. We could also see two-four inches of rain.
