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.

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.

Authorities say a possible tornado has touched down in western MS, causing damage to several businesses and vehicles.

"The storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark", Myers said.

The storm system's death toll rose to at least five on Sunday, when authorities reported the death of a Texas woman whose mobile home was destroyed Saturday night.

Heavy rains and storms raked MS into the night Saturday as the storms moved east.

Sunny Sunday with storms returning mid-week
Saturday night, temperatures will drop across the region to the high 40s to low 50s, a "dry/tranquil night", forecasters said. Plus, join us as we look back on some of the biggest stories from an area full of severe weather history.

The onslaught will continue until the end of the weekend with areas including Ohio, Pennsylvania and southern NY to northern Florida at risk.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a moderate risk (level 4 out of 5) for severe weather Saturday across parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley. The main line of storms will begin to push into this area late Sunday morning and trek to the east on Sunday afternoon.

In addition to the potential for tornado development, the strong line of storms will also produce damaging winds and heavy rain, capable of producing flash floods, particularly in Arkansas and parts of MS and Alabama. Violent weather is unlikely to be as widespread as Saturday, but some of Sunday's storms may be intense. "We are just a mess", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the outlet. We have a lot of flooding, there are several trees down. As always, the First Alert weather Team is watching and providing updates on the weather. Tournament organizers have moved up tee times for Sunday because of the storm threat.

The severe storms caused power outages across the area. As the cold front finishes moving through Alabama this afternoon, it could spark off a few more storms.

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