Dead as Storms Continue Across the Southern US

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

Temperatures will take a dip midweek after a cold front with storms sweeps through Wednesday.

"They were at the wrong place at the wrong time", Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office told The New York Times.

There were reports of multiple injuries in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said, and CNN affiliate KWTX reported widespread damage there.

In central Texas, approximately a dozen people were injured in Franklin where a tornado was confirmed by the National Weather Service, according to The Dallas Morning News.




"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said. However, a few storms may reach severe limits in South Mississippi and may be capable of isolated damaging wind gusts and tornadoes.

Suspected tornadoes were also reported in northern Shelby County stretching down to American Village near Montevallo. Franklin is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.

"The main threat will be damaging winds with the line, but an isolated tornado and isolated instances of flooding can not be ruled out as well", National Weather Service forecasters said. Trees were down and at least some minor structural damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus. Two people were hospitalized for injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene, Yezak said. The eastern part of the state is listed as a "slight risk", meaning scattered, severe storms are possible. Some people had to be extricated from damaged dwellings. In nearby Cherokee County, winds of up to 60 mph damaged two homes in the town of Alto, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Houston. Separately, one person died when a auto was submerged in floodwaters in Calhoun, also near Monroe.

Residents in parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia Georgia and Florida were encouraged to monitor weather bulletins throughout Sunday and to secure loose outdoor items.
