Stormy weather anticipated for Sunday

First Alert Weather Day on Saturday severe weather outbreak likely

Storms hammered east Texas on Saturday, with two children killed when a tree fell on a auto, authorities said. A few tornadoes are also possible.

A MS man, identified as 95-year-old Roy Ratliff died on Saturday when a tornado caused a tree to fall onto his home, Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley said.

Almost 90,000 customers were without electricity in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Georgia as of midday Sunday, according to www.poweroutage.us as the severe weather left a trail of destruction.

The National Weather Service said that the winds could blow down trees and power lines, and there is a possibility of a localized tornado anywhere in New Jersey.

About 100 miles northeast of Franklin, at least one suspected tornado swept through an outdoor event at the Caddo Mounds State Historic Site.

Ponding on roadways could also impact the morning commute, and high winds Monday of up to 50 miles per hour could also make it harder for crews to clean up any damage from the overnight storms, the service said. Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur.

In North Texas, The Dallas Morning News reported hail, ranging from pea-sized to baseball-sized, falling throughout the region.

Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a tornado hit the small Central Texas city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving auto. At least 19 others were injured and taken to hospitals for treatment, the AP reports. Flooding has also been reported.

A third child, Sebastian Omar Martinez, 13, drowned late on Saturday when he fell into a drainage ditch fill with flash floodwaters near Monroe, Louisiana, said Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office.

A line of strong to severe thunderstorms will continue pushing eastward across parts of the South into Sunday.

In Jefferson County, a county worker was killed early Sunday when he was hit by a vehicle while trying to clear a downed tree from the roadway.

At Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club, organizers of The Masters golf tournament moved up tee times Sunday to try to beat unsafe weather.

He said the threat for severe weather is greatest at such times but that the risk remained even after warm temperatures dropped.
