Deadly storms continue their destruction across southern U.S.

In East Texas, authorities say two children were killed when high winds toppled a tree onto the back of the family vehicle while it was in motion.

Robertson County officials said 55 homes, one church, four businesses, a duplex and part of the local housing authority were destroyed by the tornado.

"They were at the wrong place at the wrong time", Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office told The New York Times.

At least four people are dead after 14 tornadoes hit communities from eastern Texas to MS, with the local area "looking like a war zone".

A preliminary damage survey showed an EF-3 tornado, with winds up to 140 miles per hour, touched down in Robertson County, the NWS in Fort Worth said.

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.

To the north, dime-sized hail pounded the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The tornado watch is issued when meteorologists think the storms will include large hail, damaging wind gusts, as well as the possibility of multiple tornadoes or a single intense tornado. A 95-year-old man died after a tree fell on his trailer in MS and a 13-year-old in Louisiana also died after he drowned in a drainage canal, officials said. 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.

A line of strong to severe thunderstorms will continue pushing eastward across parts of the South into Sunday. A vehicle fatally struck a county worker in Hueytown, a suburb outside Birmingham, the Jefferson County sheriff's office said on Twitter. "Greatest risk near Ohio River Valley and S. Appalachia", CNN Meteorologist Derek Van Dam.

The first one will arrive Sunday evening and the second late Sunday night into very early Monday morning. According to AccuWeather, regions from OH to Pennsylvania and southern NY to northern Florida are at risk of damaging winds and flash flooding.
