  • Alert Day Severe Storms Expected

The tree "flattened the auto like a pancake", said Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office. Multiple people were injured and several homes were damaged in Hamilton, Mississippi, said Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley. Trees were toppled and minor damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

The massive storm system that killed several people from Texas to MS is now barreling east, threatening to spawn tornadoes and other catastrophic weather from New England to the Gulf Coast. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms will continue pushing eastward across parts of the South into Sunday.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of the state, including central Maryland, under an enhanced risk for severe storms.

In the town of Alto, Texas, which is 130 miles southeast of Dallas, 25 people were hospitalized or their injuries after a reported tornado struck the Caddo Mounds State Historic Site, where individuals had been gathered for a Native American cultural event, according to the Post.

Two children, siblings aged 3 and 8, were killed on Saturday when a tree fell on the auto in which they were sitting in Pollok, Texas, said a spokeswoman for the Angelina County Sheriff's Department.

The same system caused damage in Columbus, Mississippi. Heavy rain may also lead to localized flash flooding in areas prone to flooding. The children, ages 8 and 3, were dead at the scene, although both parents, who were in the front seat, escaped injury, he said.


A possible tornado knocked out power and left damage in Troy, about 50 miles (80 kilometres) south of Montgomery. Franklin is located about 125 miles south of Dallas.

On Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service stated "a tornado has been confirmed in far western Franklin County, AL (near Pleasant Site), though the total path length and EF-rating is yet to be determined". Some people had to be extricated from their homes.

There were reports of roof damage, downed power lines and even some cars destroyed.

"We're talking about tens of millions of people with some stormy weather before this Sunday is over", he said Sunday on "FOX & friends".

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said.
