  • Several buildings damaged, trailer homes flipped in severe storm

A tornado hit the small Central Texas city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences, said Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak.

One person was killed in northeastern MS when a tree crashed onto his trailer, Monroe County Road Manager Sonny Clay said at a news conference, adding that a tornado had struck.

Clay said 19 people were taken to hospitals for treatment, including two in critical condition.

Hamilton is 225 kilometres southwest of Memphis, Tennessee. The main severe weather threats will be damaging wind gusts, tornadoes and large hail. The 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in West Monroe late Saturday afternoon, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office said.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said. Trees were reported down in each location but there were no immediate reports of damage, injuries or fatalities.

Population centers in the zone of greatest risk, 4 out of a possible 5 on the Storm Prediction Center's scale, include Monroe and Alexandria, Louisiana. Alto is situated about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Houston.

About 65,000 homes and businesses are without power in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama along the path of storms crossing the region.

ABC News reported two more deaths after a tornado ripped through Hamilton, Mississippi.

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

The tornado destroyed 55 homes, a church, four businesses, a duplex, and part of the local housing authority building, authorities said. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving auto.

Powerful storms swept across the South on Sunday after unleashing suspected tornadoes and flooding that killed at least six people - including three children - injured dozens and flattened much of a Texas town.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Miss., area. No injuries were reported, and news footage showed shattered windows and rooftop debris.

Two children, siblings aged 3 and 8, were killed on Saturday when a tree fell on the auto in which they were sitting in Pollok, Texas, said a spokeswoman for the Angelina County Sheriff's Department. The parents in the front seats were not hurt. Franklin is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.
