Severe weather possible late tonight & Sunday

Severe storms and wind gusts up to 40 mph will hit New Orleans Saturday afternoon

A tornado ripped through Franklin, Texas, on Saturday as the National Weather Service in the state posted one tornado warning after another.

Tornado warnings and watches were posted in the state Saturday night as the severe weather exited MS into Alabama.

Behind the storms, Sunday afternoon looks mostly dry, although a few isolated showers or thunderstorms may still develop as cooler, drier air begins moving into the region. Some storms will be strong/severe.

The Storm Prediction Center said the primary threats in the watch area are for damaging wind gusts of up to 65 miles per hour and isolated areas with large hail, up to one inch in diameter. By the time it moves into our area the line will be broken with scattered storms. They were in the back seat with their parents in the front, said Angelina County Sheriff's Department Capt. Alton Lenderman. Flooding has also been reported.

The storm system's death toll rose to at least five on Sunday, when authorities reported the death of a Texas woman whose mobile home was destroyed Saturday night.

There were reports of multiple injuries in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said, and CNN affiliate KWTX reported widespread damage there.

Public Information Officer Glenn Springfield also confirmed to PEOPLE that over the weekend, a 13-year-old boy died in West Monroe, Louisiana, after drowning in a drainage area. Starting out with hit and miss storms this morning, storms should remain below severe limits early but that all changes later today.

"The storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark", Myers said.

We have an Alert Day due to strong storms later this afternoon and tonight.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told CNN. We have a lot of flooding, there are several trees down. Make sure you have a NOAA Weather Radio and our First Alert Weather App!

Now the storm turns toward the Midwest and East Coast.

The storm system will lift northeast Sunday presenting a risk of strong to severe storms in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic.
