HAUGHTON - A toddler died when a tree fell on the recreational vehicle she was sleeping in with four adults and another child overnight.

The incident happened on Highway 80 in Haughton. 

In other areas of Northwest Louisiana, emergency officials reported trees fell on homes and roadways.  Bossier Parish, Louisiana, had most of the damage.
