The Loudoun County sheriff's office says a 6-year-old boy has been killed after being struck by a tree during powerful storms that hit the region.
Authorities say the boy was walking with his family on a path near the Claude Moore Recreation Center in Sterling on Sunday. They say heavy winds from a storm caused a large portion of a tree to fall on him.
The boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.
