  • A broken line of storms will persists this morning

Multiple injuries were reported in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said. Trees were down and at least some minor structural damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area.

The children, ages 3 and 8, were killed when a tree fell on a vehicle.

Multiple injuries were also reported in the town of Franklin, Texas where a large preliminary EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 miles per hour moved through the town on Saturday.

Storms hammered east Texas on Saturday, with two children killed when a tree fell on a auto, authorities said. This morning, there is a lot of heavy rain moving through Alabama, into Georgia and eastern Tennessee.

The 38-member entourage from the Horry (OH'-ree) County School of Music, along with 17 chaperones, left Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday for Dallas-Fort Worth, but storms forced their flight to divert to Little Rock, Arkansas.

The children, ages 3 and 8, were in the back seat with their parents in the front when the tree fell on their vehicle around 3 p.m., said Angelina County Sheriff's Department Captain Alton Lenderman.

"We'll be seeing severe weather from Florida to NY, with the most unstable parts so far in Georgia", said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center.

Georgetown Students Vote To Pay For Slavery Reparations
In 2016, Georgetown made the decision to provide admissions preference to descendants of the slaves sold by the school. As a result of the resolution, students will now be charged an additional $27.20 per semester.

The rash of storms then headed east, where it claimed the life of a Louisiana teen. The 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in West Monroe late Saturday afternoon, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office said.

Three more deaths are confirmed from powerful storms sweeping through the southern United States, bringing the death toll to at least six. An isolated tornado is also possible, but not likely, forecasters said. A spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said authorities were in Hamilton and could not be reached for confirmation.

The fire station in Hamilton was destroyed, as were multiple homes and a retail center.

Two children died in Texas when a tree fell on a vehicle in which they were riding, and an elderly man was killed when a tree fell on his trailer in Hamilton, Mississippi.

"We were hit really, really, hard". There are several trees down.

At Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club, organizers of The Masters golf tournament moved up tee times Sunday to try to beat unsafe weather.

"The storms will take on more of a squall line set up with the greatest threats being from damaging wind gusts, flash flooding and lightning strikes", AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
