Severe weather risk low overnight, much cooler tomorrow

First Alert Forecast Strong to severe storms likely today

The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died Saturday when the tree toppled onto the back of their family's auto in Lufkin while it was in motion.

Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley says multiple people were injured and multiple homes were damaged in Hamilton, Mississippi, which is 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Memphis, Tennessee.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a moderate risk (level 4 out of 5) for severe weather Saturday across parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley.

Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs were torn off buildings and the cinderblock foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco. Tournament organizers have moved up tee times for Sunday because of the storm threat.

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.

In East Texas, 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. Cherokee County Judge Chris Davis said the fatality that was reported was of a woman who died of her critical injuries. The parents in the front seats were not hurt.

Texas is seeing the beginning of the risky and severe storms forecast to slam parts of the Southeast and Ohio River Valley this weekend.

"The main threat will be damaging winds with the line, but an isolated tornado and isolated instances of flooding can not be ruled out as well", National Weather Service forecasters said. Franklin is located about 125 miles south of Dallas.

The National Weather Service of Fort Worth went on to rate the tornado an EF-3, with 140 miles per hour winds. Flooding has also been reported. Some people had to be extricated from damaged dwellings.

Authorities said 13-year-old Sebastian Omar Martinez drowned in a drainage canal after flash flooding struck Bawcomville, near Monroe, said Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Department.

About 90 million people are under the gun for destructive weather Sunday, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said.

Forecasters in central Texas reported a possible twister Saturday in Robertson County, near Hearne and Franklin.
