Damaging winds, isolated tornadoes possible Sunday: What you need to know

"We are just a mess", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the outlet. However, a few storms may reach severe limits in South Mississippi and may be capable of isolated damaging wind gusts and tornadoes.

A tornado was reported in the area 140 miles (225 kilometres) southwest of Memphis, Tenn., at the time. A tornado was reported in the area at the time. Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs torn off buildings and the cinder block foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco. Cherokee County Judge Chris Davis said the fatality that was reported was of a woman who died of her critical injuries.

The system was blamed for three deaths, two in Texas and one in Hamilton, Mississippi, an area about 45 miles northeast of the campus of Mississippi State University.

There were reports of multiple injuries, the NWS said, and KBTX-TV reported widespread damage. Trees were toppled and minor damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

Suspected tornadoes also were reported overnight in various parts of Alabama, including Highland Lakes, Greystone and American Village in Shelby County and lake Purdy at Grants in Jefferson County. Damage from that first round of storms included reports of trees down in Gwinnett, Walton, Paulding, Butts and Lamar counties. 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.

After arriving at the scene, police were able to determine "that two children age 8 and 3 were trapped in the back seat of the vehicle under the tree". Flooding has also been reported.

A potent storm system is working toward the region and will bring an increased threat for severe weather later tonight into Sunday. Power outages were wide spread throughout the path of the storm, with 35,824 without power in Texas, 16,160 in Louisiana, 24,029 in Missouri, 27,877 in MS, 10,543 in Alabama and 12,170 in Georgia, according to PowerOutage.US.

Franklin, Texas, roughly 125 miles south of Dallas, was nearly entirely flattened by a tornado, according to the Robertson County Sheriff's Office. Two people were hospitalized for injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene, Yezak said. Some people had to be extricated from their homes. Winds of up to 60 miles per hour (97 kph) were reported Saturday in Cherokee County, damaging two homes in Alto (AL'-toh) but not injuring anyone.
