From Texas to Georgia, South braces for storms and potential tornadoes

Alert Day: Severe Storms Expected

The primary threats include: large hail, damaging wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour and a tornado or two is possible mainly in locations in the southern portion of the outlined watch area.

Hamilton, Mississippi, is 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Memphis, Tennessee. "Some storms may also produce large hail or torrential downpours resulting in localized flash flooding", the National Weather Service tweeted.

Authorities in MS have identified the man who they say was killed after a tornado struck his town.

The same system caused damage in Columbus, Mississippi.

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.

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

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

Two children, ages 3 and 8, were killed when a tree fell on their vehicle as storms hammered east Texas. Violent weather is unlikely to be as widespread as Saturday, but some of Sunday's storms may be intense.

There were multiple confirmed fatalities and multiple injuries in Monroe County from severe weather overnight, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said without providing any additional details.

In East Texas, authorities say two children were killed when high winds toppled a tree onto the back of the family auto while it was in motion.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told CNN. They were in the back seat with their parents in the front, Angelina County Sheriff's Department Capt. Alton Lenderman said.

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.
