Several buildings damaged, trailer homes flipped in severe storm

Damaging winds, isolated tornadoes possible Sunday: What you need to know

Damaging winds are expected to be the primary threat, but a few tornadoes are also possible.

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. The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says an 8-year-old and 3-year-old died after the tree hit the back of the auto in Lufkin, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center is cautioning that, "Strong tornadoes are possible today into tonight from east Texas into MS, with the greatest threat expected between 2PM-8PM CDT". Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs torn off buildings and the cinder block foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco.

The energy from warm afternoon temperatures will diminish, but the risk for tornadoes will not be over.

National Weather Service meteorologist Monique (moh-NEEK') Sellers says the agency received reports of downed trees, and damage to buildings and a transmission tower. The death is believed to be storm related, the sheriff's office said.

Storms have now moved out of North Alabama and the tornado watch from the early morning hours has expired. Violent weather is unlikely to be as widespread as Saturday, but some of Sunday's storms may be intense.

As the storms tore through MS overnight into Sunday, they left a trail of destruction that authorities are still combing through.

The Washington Post went on to report that an elderly man was killed "when a tree fell on his trailer in Hamilton, Mississippi".

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said. There are several trees down. "We are just a mess". This morning, there is a lot of heavy rain moving through Alabama, into Georgia and eastern Tennessee.

The tournament ended - with Tiger Woods winning his fifth Masters in dramatic fashion - earlier than usual, at mid-afternoon.

The city was also placed under a boil-water notice.
