Tornado watch issued for central and eastern Kentucky

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

Deadly storms continue to move across the South after spawning suspected tornadoes and damaging several homes.

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.

There were reports of multiple injuries, the NWS said, and KBTX-TV reported widespread damage. More than 140,000 customers remained without power in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas late Saturday. "We are just a mess", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the outlet.

A tornado ripped through Franklin, Texas, on Saturday as the National Weather Service in the state posted one tornado warning after another.

The storms most capable of producing tornadoes and large hail will be the individual, rotating cells that form ahead of a larger complex of thunderstorms. A tornado was reported in the area at the time.

Tornado warnings and watches were posted in the state Saturday night as the severe weather exited MS into Alabama. Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches said in a statement that the children, who were in the auto with their parents during the storm, were pronounced dead on the scene. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometres) south of Dallas.

A preliminary damage survey showed an EF-3 tornado, with winds up to 140 miles per hour, touched down in Robertson County, the NWS in Fort Worth said. Isolated damage reports came in from throughout the state, including the hard-hit area of Troy in Pike County. Some people had to be extricated from damaged dwellings.

Winds of up to 60 mph (96.56 kph) were reported in Cherokee County, Texas, damaging two homes in Alto, about 140 miles (225 kilometres) north of Houston, but no injuries were reported.

Downed trees and damage to buildings and a transmission tower were reported, said meteorologist Monique Sellers. The center said it expects the threat of severe weather to increase throughout the day.

In preparation for the inclement weather reaching Georgia, the Augusta National announced it would move up the start time on Sunday for Round 4 of the Masters in hope that play would finish before thunderstorms reached the golf course, according to CBS.
