First Alert Weather Day: Tornado Watch issued for Coastal Empire & Lowcountry area

Meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area.

The children, ages 3 and 8, were in the back seat with their parents in the front when the tree fell on their vehicle around 3 p.m., said Angelina County Sheriff's Department Captain Alton Lenderman. The children were pronounced dead at the scene.

An isolated tornado also is possible, the weather service says. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometres) south of Dallas.

A preliminary damage survey found that a tornado with peak intensity of EF-3 and winds up to 140 miles per hour touched down in Robertson County, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

The tornado destroyed 55 homes, a church, four businesses, a duplex, and part of the local housing authority building, authorities said.

They moved quickly, arresting him within 12 hours because they were anxious that "other crimes were imminent", Browning said. Browning noted that each of the three arson charges against Matthews carry a maximum prison sentence of 15 years.

Multiple people have been reported injured as tornadoes continued to flare along the Mississippi-Alabama state line late Saturday and early Sunday.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said. Nineteen residents were taken to hospitals, including two in critical condition. A tornado was reported in the area 140 miles southwest of Memphis, Tennessee, at the time. A tornado watch is in effect for most of the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. "We are just a mess".

More than 100 million people from the middle of the United States to the East Coast were at risk of extreme weather, facing warnings of heavy thunderstorms and another round of tornadoes, said meteorologist Bob Oravec of the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center.

There were reports of multiple injuries in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said, and KWTX reported widespread damage there. University spokesman Sid Salter said some debris, possibly carried by the tornado, was found on campus, but no injuries were reported and no buildings were damaged. Trees were toppled and minor damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

The large storm system also knocked out power to thousands and caused some flash flooding.
