Officials provide update on tornado that hit small Texas town

Alert Day Severe Storms Expected

Severe weather came through Louisiana on Saturday afternoon, Springfield said.

A total of 17 tornadoes were reported across the south from Texas to Alabama on Saturday and Sunday, Oravec said.

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

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

One thunderstorm cell near Columbus Air Force Base in MS has a potential "debris ball" signature on radar, which indicates the potential for significant tornado damage that can be detected by radar, he said. Make sure you have a NOAA Weather Radio and our First Alert Weather App!

Tornado warnings remained in effect on Sunday for southeastern Alabama's Barbour and Russell counties, Oravec said.

The storms are part of a large system moving through the southern United States, knocking out power to thousands and causing some flash flooding.

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

The weather service also says preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 mph touched down in Franklin, located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.

"We were hit really, really, hard". The death is believed to be storm related, the sheriff's office said.

At Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club, organizers of The Masters golf tournament moved up tee times Sunday to try to beat unsafe weather. Tournament organizers have moved up tee times for Sunday because of the storm threat. "We are just a mess", Cantrell said.

The National Weather Service detected a possible twister on radar, but it's unclear whether a tornado or straight-line winds caused the damage.

The batch of severe storms that moved through overnight into early Sunday morning developed out ahead of an approaching cold front. Some of those storms may sneak into western Kentucky later this evening into the wee hours of the morning.
