    A powerful storm that swept across Washington state on Sunday left tens of thousands without power and another person dead, NBC News reported.

    A large tree fell on a vehicle in a Seattle park, crushing it and killing a man inside, according to officials.

    Wind gusts in the western part of the state hit 20 to 60 mph, according to NBC station KING.

    Rain was also being reported across much of the Pacific Northwest on Sunday, with flood warnings and watches in effect from southern Oregon to San Francisco.
