From Texas to Georgia, South braces for storms and potential tornadoes

  • FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY Widespread severe weather this afternoon

At least one mobile home was destroyed, throwing a man from the mobile home.

Population centers in the zone of greatest risk, 4 out of a possible 5 on the Storm Prediction Center's scale, include Monroe and Alexandria, Louisiana. Multiple people were injured and several homes were damaged in Hamilton, Mississippi, said Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley.

Storms have now moved out of North Alabama and the tornado watch from the early morning hours has expired.

In addition to the potential for tornado development, the strong line of storms will also produce damaging winds and heavy rain, capable of producing flash floods, particularly in Arkansas and parts of MS and Alabama. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving auto. The 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in West Monroe late Saturday afternoon, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office said.

In East Texas, authorities say two children were killed when high winds toppled a tree onto the back of the family auto while it was in motion.

By late Saturday, the storms were expected to organize into a line as they cross the western border of Mississippi.


The Angelina County Sheriff's Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family's vehicle in Lufkin while it was in motion.

The fire station in Hamilton was destroyed, as were multiple homes and a retail center. In addition to tornadoes, many of these storms featured heavy rain, large hail and damaging winds. Trees were down throughout the hilly city on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi.

"We were hit really, really, hard".

At Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club, organizers of The Masters golf tournament moved up tee times Sunday to try to beat unsafe weather. "We are just a mess".

The batch of severe storms that moved through overnight into early Sunday morning developed out ahead of an approaching cold front.
