From Texas to Georgia, South braces for storms and potential tornadoes

Hamilton, Mississippi, is 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Memphis, Tennessee. The 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in West Monroe late Saturday afternoon, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office said.

There were reports of multiple injuries in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said, and KWTX reported widespread damage there.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told CNN. Mississippi State University's 21,000 students huddled in basements and hallways as a tornado came near the school's campus in Starkville. Damage from a possible tornado was also reported on Saturday afternoon in Alto, Texas. Trees were down and at least some minor structural damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

Power poles and trees were knocked over and parts of buildings were left hanging across utility lines in Troy, located about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Montgomery.

Two different rounds of strong storms are expected to track through the WJZ-TV viewing area. They were in the back seat with their parents in the front, said Angelina County Sheriff's Department Capt. Alton Lenderman. The children, ages 3 and 8, were killed when a tree fell on a vehicle Saturday. Heavy rain may also lead to localized flash flooding in areas prone to flooding. More than 140,000 customers remained without power in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas late Saturday.
