In East Texas, the Angelina County Sheriff's Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family's auto in Lufkin while it was in motion. Some people had to be extricated from damaged dwellings. They found each other while crawling through the remnants of the house they have lived in since 1972.

The threat of severe weather will likely increase throughout the day, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said.

A tornado was reported in the area 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Memphis, Tennessee, at the time.

But the majority of damaged remained in the Southern part of the U.S.

Deadly storms continue to move across the South after spawning suspected tornadoes and damaging several homes. A mobile home community was damaged, but no injuries are being reported. Meteorologists will study damage to trees and structures, and trace the track of the debris. Separately, one person died when a vehicle was submerged in floodwaters in Calhoun, also near Monroe.
