Alert Day: Severe Storms Expected

At least three children have been killed during an outbreak of severe weather that has been hitting the south this weekend.

But "the storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark", he said. Nineteen residents were taken to hospitals, including two in critical condition. Alto is situated about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Houston.

Storms will originally develop to our west, where a High Risk over Louisiana and MS marks the location of the most intense and widespread storms Saturday. No injuries were reported there, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged. Trees were down throughout the hilly city on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi.

The roof of a hotel in New Albany, Mississippi, was damaged, although the cause was unclear. Mississippi State University's 21,000 students huddled in basements and hallways as a tornado came near the school's campus in Starkville. Trees were toppled and minor damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

By tonight, the strong cold front finally pushes eastward while taking all rain and storm chances along with it. A possible tornado knocked out power and left damage in Troy, about 50 miles south of Montgomery.

Even though the last game was a blowout, the series between Denver and San Antonio has stayed fairly competitive. It was the fifth time in his career to achieve that, but that wasn't enough for Heat to get into the playoffs.

The most significant risk of severe weather is expected Saturday, but there's still considerable potential Sunday. The auto was on a back country road in Pollok, Texas, about 150 miles southeast of Dallas.

The Angelina County Sheriff's Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family's auto in Lufkin while it was in motion. "Some storms may also produce large hail or torrential downpours resulting in localized flash flooding", the National Weather Service tweeted.

Local emergency management officials say one person is dead after a tornado swept through a northern MS town late Saturday.

Tornadoes in Texas killed two and destroyed homes. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometres) south of Dallas.

The massive storm system that killed several people from Texas to MS is now barreling east, threatening to spawn tornadoes and other catastrophic weather from New England to the Gulf Coast. Crews will continue to survey the damage over the next few days. None of the injuries were thought to be life-threatening.
