Deadly storms continue their destruction across southern U.S.

A tornado hit the small Central Texas city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences, said Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak. Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur. A spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said authorities were in Hamilton and could not be reached for confirmation.

Deadly tornadoes twisted through the U.S. South, killing at least two children as a massive storm pressed east on Sunday, threatening to drench communities from NY to Atlanta and snarl the start of the workweek.

In addition to the potential for tornado development, the strong line of storms will also produce damaging winds and heavy rain, capable of producing flash floods, particularly in Arkansas and parts of MS and Alabama.

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

In East Texas, authorities say two children were killed when high winds toppled a tree onto the back of the family auto while it was in motion.

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