"Damaging winds appear to be the greatest threat on Sunday, but tornadoes will also be possible", CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said.

Hamilton, Mississippi, is 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Memphis, Tennessee.

Tornado watches are already in place across parts of the region and the potent storm system has already been producing strong tornadoes in eastern Texas. Heavy rain may also lead to localized flash flooding in areas prone to flooding.

Debris is strewn in flooded water in the Pemberton Quarters strip mall following severe weather Saturday, April 13, 2019 in Vicksburg, Miss.

The death is believed to be storm related, public information officer Glenn Springfield said.

The Robertson County Sheriff's Office said that the tornado was spotted near FM 485, 1644, and FM 46.

He will certainly feel the pressure, he said, because he cares deeply about his legacy and his craft. "It gives you confidence". Tiger Woods is in position to claim his first major title in 11 years, after a record-breaking third round of the Masters.


One thunderstorm cell near Columbus Air Force Base in MS has a potential "debris ball" signature on radar, which indicates the potential for significant tornado damage that can be detected by radar, he said. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving vehicle. 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.

Monroe County Road Manager Sonny Clay said at a news conference Sunday that a man was killed in Hamilton when a tree fell on his trailer.

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. Violent weather is unlikely to be as widespread as Saturday, but some of Sunday's storms may be intense. The children, ages 8 and 3, were dead at the scene, although both parents, who were in the front seat, escaped injury, he said.

"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said.

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.
