Severe weather possible Sunday in Richmond

Alert Day: Severe Storms Expected

Rain and storms increase late this afternoon and evening as a dynamic system pushes across the South. Storms will be capable of producing damaging wind, large hail, tornadoes and flash flooding. A tornado was reported in the area 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Memphis, Tennessee, at the time.

Authorities in MS have identified the man who they say was killed after a tornado struck his town.

One thunderstorm cell near Columbus Air Force Base in MS has a potential "debris ball" signature on radar, which indicates the potential for significant tornado damage that can be detected by radar, he said.

Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a tornado hit the small Central Texas city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued an enhanced risk (level 3 out of 5) stretching from eastern Alabama through the southern Appalachians and into the Ohio Valley.

Gurley says Ratliff was inside his home on Center Hill Road when a tree smashed through his mobile home crushing him in his sleep.

The storm system's first two victims were two children in east Texas.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency warned of a confirmed tornado around Saturday night.

A man from Hamilton has died in the tornado that plowed through Monroe County Saturday.

By late Saturday, the storms were expected to organize into a line as they cross the western border of Mississippi.

The tree "flattened the vehicle like a pancake", said Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office.

Meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area. The children, ages 8 and 3, were dead at the scene, although both parents, who were in the front seat, escaped injury, he said. Trees were down throughout the hilly city on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi.

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.
