Deadly storms hit the south, reports of tornadoes – Axios

Powerful storms that hit South Saturday killed one woman and three children in separate incidents as tornadoes were reported in the area – and meteorologists had been warned against severe weather in the southern areas.

Details: The Angelina County sheriff's department in Texas said an 8-year-old child and a 3-year-old died when a tree fell on a car and pinched her in it. A woman died in a weather-related debris incidence near Weches in Houston County, Texas, said the sheriff's office, according to NBC. In Louisiana, the sheriff's office in Ouachita Parish said the drowning death of a boy (1

3) is associated with bad weather in Louisiana, Knoe8 reports.

The Big Picture: The National Weather Service said heavy storms along with fierce winds and hail had hit communities from eastern Texas to western Alabama.

What's next? The NWS said the strong storm system would move through the Appalachian Sunday from the Mississippi Valley. "With some isolated tornadoes in parts of the Ohio Valley southward through the southern Appalachians and the northeastern Gulf Coast, it will be possible to damage wind and hail," it says.
