Weather: No tornadoes are confirmed, but powerful winds are on the way

WATCH Devastation Wrought by Deadly Tornado in Texas

Davis said rotating winds were spotted on weather radar in the Philadelphia area early this morning, prompting the weather service to issue a rare tornado warning for most of Philadelphia County, as well as parts of Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties in New Jersey from 3:19 a.m. through 3:45 a.m.

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.

The threat will begin on Wednesday afternoon from Texas north to Iowa, with the greatest threat in Texas and Oklahoma, Hennen said.

Sunday's warnings come as a severe storm in the South destroyed homes, hospitalized people and caused the deaths of eight people.

"The storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark", Myers said. Capt. Alton Lenderman said the parents, who were in the front seats, were not injured.

Two children died in Texas when a tree fell on a auto in which they were riding, and an elderly man was killed when a tree fell on his trailer in Hamilton, Mississippi. No injuries were reported, but officials reported damage to several businesses and vehicles.

Saturday was a particularly destructive day for the storm.

The weather service also says preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 mph touched down in Franklin, located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.

As of early Sunday, all of Franklin and its neighboring city of Bremond were without electricity.

According to Capt Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office, the tree "flattened the auto like a pancake", but the parents, who were riding in the front of the vehicle, were not injured.

Deaths were reported across Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana.

As the storms tore through MS overnight into Sunday, they left a trail of destruction that authorities are still combing through.

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.

The next round of severe weather, including tornadoes, damaging winds and hail, is expected to start later this week when a potent storm moves from the Rockies into the Central Plains.
