Although the tornado watch for much of the area is canceled, severe weather is still expected through the morning, including heavy rain, chances of hail the size of pennies and wind gusts, the NWS said. At least 19 others were injured and taken to hospitals for treatment, the AP reports.

Two children were killed on a back road in East Texas when a pine tree fell onto a auto they were riding in a severe thunderstorm Saturday near Pollok, about 150 miles (241 kilometers) southeast of Dallas.

The NWS says that Monday through to Saturday residents in those areas should expect isolated wind damage possibly tomorrow. Trees were down throughout the hilly city on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi.

In addition, three people were killed when a private jet crashed in MS on Saturday, although Bryant said it was unclear whether it was caused by the weather.

Multiple people have been reported injured as tornadoes continued to flare along the Mississippi-Alabama state line late Saturday and early Sunday. Meteorologists will study damage to trees and structures, and trace the track of the debris.

Heavy rains and storms raked the Magnolia State into the night, then moved into Alabama.




Two children died in Texas when a tree fell on a vehicle in which they were riding, and an elderly man was killed when a tree fell on his trailer in Hamilton, Mississippi.

The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says an 8-year-old and 3-year-old died after the tree hit the back of the vehicle in Lufkin, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston. The children, ages 8 and 3, were dead at the scene, although both parents, who were in the front seat, escaped injury, he said.

"Some storms may also produce large hail or torrential downpours resulting in localized flash flooding", the weather service tweeted.

In Louisiana, Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Department said Sunday that two people died in floodwaters Saturday. Franklin is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.

On Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service stated "a tornado has been confirmed in far western Franklin County, AL (near Pleasant Site), though the total path length and EF-rating is yet to be determined". Crews will continue to survey the damage over the next few days. Some people had to be extricated from their homes.

Winds of up to 60 miles per hour (96.56 kph) were reported in Cherokee County, Texas, damaging two homes in Alto but not injuring anyone.
