At least five killed in powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes in South

Alert Day: Severe Storms Expected

Robertson County officials said 55 homes, one church, four businesses, a duplex and part of the local housing authority were destroyed by the tornado.

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

Hamilton is 225 kilometres southwest of Memphis, Tennessee. Damage also has been reported near Satartia, Mississippi, from the storms.

A deadly storm system is threatening millions of Americans as severe weather now bears down on the East Coast and parts of the Midwest.

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. Storms will be weaker and more isolated than what we experience overnight, but some gusty winds and heavy rain will be possible where storms develop.

At least eight people - including three children - were reported dead by Sunday after powerful storms unleashed tornadoes and flooding across much of the southern U.S. Trees were down throughout the hilly city on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi. "Some storms may also produce large hail or torrential downpours resulting in localized flash flooding", the National Weather Service tweeted. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas. Power outages were wide spread throughout the path of the storm, with 35,824 without power in Texas, 16,160 in Louisiana, 24,029 in Missouri, 27,877 in MS, 10,543 in Alabama and 12,170 in Georgia, according to PowerOutage.US.

A preliminary damage survey found that a tornado with peak intensity of EF-3 and winds up to 140 miles per hour touched down in Robertson County, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Tornado warnings and watches were posted in the state Saturday night as the severe weather exited MS into Alabama. Crews were sent to survey the damage. Some people had to be extricated from their homes.

Residents have reported downed power lines, cars overturned and homes completely destroyed, KBTX reports. Alto is situated about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Houston.
