Strong storms in US South kill at least 8 and injure dozens

A broken line of storms will persists this morning

Storms that killed at least two people in Texas and one in Louisiana crossed the Mississippi/Alabama state line early Sunday, moving the risk of life-threatening winds, strong tornadoes and large hail to a large section of the United States.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center is cautioning that, "Strong tornadoes are possible today into tonight from east Texas into MS, with the greatest threat expected between 2PM-8PM CDT".

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

The tornado threat will be lower by then, but damaging winds could still present hazardous conditions.

In East Texas, 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 auto in Lufkin while it was in motion.

According to the Post, an employee for Jefferson County in Alabama was also killed around 2:15 a.m. after "being struck by a vehicle while he was helping clear away trees toppled by the storm". A tornado was reported in the area at the time. Isolated damage reports came in from throughout the state, including the hard-hit area of Troy in Pike County. Multiple people were injured and several homes were damaged in Hamilton, Mississippi, said Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley. Franklin is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.

A tree lies on its side following a suspected tornado in Franklin, Texas, on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

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.

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. Crews will continue to survey the damage over the next few days.

Residents have reported downed power lines, cars overturned and homes completely destroyed, KBTX reports. Violent weather is unlikely to be as widespread as Saturday, but some of Sunday's storms may be intense.
