100 million people at risk as deadly storms and tornadoes march east

The Robertson County Sheriff's Office said that the tornado was spotted near FM 485, 1644, and FM 46. Multiple people were injured and several homes were damaged in Hamilton, Mississippi, said Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley. A tornado was reported in the area at the time.

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.

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.

John Moore, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Jackson, says a twister was reported Saturday in the Vicksburg area of MS and was indicated on radar.

Powerful storms that killed at least two people continued to move across the South on Sunday after spawning suspected tornadoes that left several people injured and multiple homes and businesses damaged or without power. No fatalities were reported. The parents in the front seats were not hurt.

The same system caused damage in Columbus, Mississippi.

"We'll be seeing severe weather from Florida to NY, with the most unstable parts so far in Georgia", said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center. Franklin is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.

The weather service said preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado touched down with winds of 140 miles per hour (225.3 kph).

He says two people were taken to a hospital with injuries that aren't thought to be life-threatening and that about a dozen others were treated at the scene for minor injuries, including people who had to be extricated from their homes.

A twister hit Vicksburg, Mississippi early Saturday evening.

"Some storms may also produce large hail or torrential downpours resulting in localized flash flooding", the weather service tweeted.

Meantime a 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in West Monroe, Louisiana, late Saturday afternoon, according to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office.

The forecast of severe weather forced officials at the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, to start the final round of the tournament early on Sunday in order to finish in midafternoon before it began raining.
