Eight dead after tornadoes rip across US South

Over the weekend, four people died in Texas, two in Louisiana, one in MS and another in Alabama.

The storm system picked up strength in the U.S. South over the weekend, where it spurred tornadoes that killed at least five people, including three children, officials said.

The weather service says a possible tornado also swept through part of Clark County in western OH on Sunday, about 40 miles west of Columbus, and damaged some mobile homes.

Franklin, Texas was heavily damaged with almost 60 buildings destroyed, local authorities say, including around 55 homes and several public buildings.

The threat of severe weather will likely increase throughout the day, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said. The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says an 8-year-old and 3-year-old died after the tree hit the back of the auto in Lufkin, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston.

Public Information Officer Glenn Springfield also confirmed to PEOPLE that over the weekend, a 13-year-old boy died in West Monroe, Louisiana, after drowning in a drainage area.

Near the Birmingham suburb of Hueytown, a county employee died after being struck by a vehicle while he was helping clear away trees about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, said Capt. David Agee of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

Warm air enhanced the atmosphere's instability Saturday, allowing the storm system to rev up more energy and grow, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said. The death is believed to be storm related, the sheriff's office said.

In Vicksburg, Mississippi, another possible tornado touched down.

John Moore, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Jackson, says a twister was reported Saturday in the Vicksburg area of MS and was indicated on radar.

One person was reported dead in Monroe County, Mississippi as a tornado ripped through Hamilton, about 45 miles northeast of the campus of Mississippi State University. We have a lot of flooding. "We are just a mess".

Tournament organizers have moved up tee times for Sunday because of the storm threat. Right now forecasters are thinking the storms could arrive in the state by Thursday afternoon and last into Thursday evening. EF2 tornados have wind speeds of 111 to 135 miles per hour and do "considerable damage".
