Dead as Storms Continue Across the Southern US

The children were in a auto with their parents, when a massive tree fell on their vehicle due to strong winds, killing both minors on the spot.

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.

The fatal incident occurred in Angelina County. If there are problems, they fall on my shoulders.

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. Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs torn off buildings and the cinder block foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco. Cherokee County Judge Chris Davis said one woman died of critical injuries, according to The Associated Press, which reports about two dozen additional injuries there.

In North Texas, The Dallas Morning News reported hail, ranging from pea-sized to baseball-sized, falling throughout the region.

Meanwhile, much of the eastern Great Lakes and mid-Atlantic woke up Monday to damaged buildings, closed schools, and dark homes and businesses after powerful storms that spawned at least one confirmed tornado. Multiple people were injured and several homes were damaged in Hamilton, Mississippi, said Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley.
