Several buildings have been damaged after a tornado-warned storm moved through Franklin.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area. The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says an 8-year-old and 3-year-old died after the tree hit the back of the vehicle in Lufkin, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston. Most of our area is under a Slight Risk (2 out 5) for severe storms.

"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.

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

Both lines of storms are capable of producing damaging wind gusts, isolated hail and even a tornado or two.

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. Thirteen-year-old Sebastian Omar Martinez drowned in a drainage canal in Bawcomville, said Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Department, the AP reports.

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.

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.

There were multiple confirmed fatalities and multiple injuries in Monroe County from severe weather overnight, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said without providing any additional details. Trees were down throughout the hilly city on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi.

But tornadoes aren't the only possible cause of destruction Sunday.

The National Weather Service says thunderstorms are expected Saturday from Texas to Alabama.
