A local woman died today, Chattanooga police said, when a tree fell on her as she was trying to move her vehicle just after midnight.

Micki Hare, 54, had gone outside to move her and her husband’s cars to avoid any falling trees, according to police. Her husband heard a tree falling. He went outside and saw a tree had hit a car, but he told police he couldn’t find his wife.

Chattanooga Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary said this is the first reported weather-related death since Tropical Storm Lee hit Chattanooga.
