2 children killed as storms lash Texas

FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY Widespread severe weather this afternoon

Rain and storms increase late this afternoon and evening as a dynamic system pushes across the South. Storms will be capable of producing damaging wind, large hail, tornadoes and flash flooding.

Hamilton is 225 kilometres southwest of Memphis, Tennessee.

Tornadoes at that time can be especially risky since they are hard to see and people are less likely to receive warnings while they're asleep.

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.

Severe weather came through Louisiana on Saturday afternoon, Springfield said. This puts the bluegrass state in the possible bullseye for severe storms.

The roof of a hotel in New Albany, Mississippi, was damaged, although the cause was unclear.

The system will begin to move through Alabama overnight and is expected to reach Georgia by Sunday morning.


Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a tornado hit the small Central Texas city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency warned of a confirmed tornado around Saturday night.

The storm system's first two victims were two children in east Texas.

A man from Hamilton has died in the tornado that plowed through Monroe County Saturday. Damage was reported early Saturday evening in Vicksburg, Mississippi, as severe thunderstorms rumbled through the city. The children, ages 3 and 8, were killed when a tree fell on a auto Saturday. Violent weather is unlikely to be as widespread as Saturday, but some of Sunday's storms may be intense.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said. The parents in the front seats were not hurt.

A preliminary damage survey showed an EF-3 tornado, with winds up to 140 miles per hour, touched down in Robertson County, the NWS in Fort Worth said.
