Storms flatten buildings, leave thousands without power

Storms flatten buildings, leave thousands without power”

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

Tornados, wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour and pounding hail remained threats early Monday from eastern NY and into New England, as the remnants of a deadly weekend storm push out to sea, the National Weather Service said.

Shelby, Ohio, a city in Richland County, was hit hard with the severe weather that rolled through the area Sunday afternoon.

The sheriffs office from nearby Houston County told KLTV that one woman was found dead near her home on Highway 21 West.

A party of about two dozen members of a SC music school is finally on its way to China.

A tornado flattened much of the south side of Franklin, Texas, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences, said Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak. "Additional surveys will likely be needed on Monday in this area". The result: nearly 7,000 people spent the night in DFW terminals, Norton said.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of the state, including central Maryland, under an enhanced risk for severe storms. Responders pulled him from a drainage canal. His name was not immediately released.

Two children were killed on a back road in East Texas when a pine tree fell on to the vehicle in which they were riding in a severe thunderstorm on Saturday near Pollok, about 240km southeast of Dallas.

At least five people died over the weekend as powerful thunderstorms that spawned tornadoes made their way toward the Atlantic Coast. Those in the area should also expect quarter-size hail with the storms.

Wind advisories will be in place for more than 55 million people, Hennen said.

Two people were hospitalized for injuries not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Yezak said.

They say people at home can still help.

Two children, siblings aged three and eight, were killed on Saturday when a tree fell on the vehicle in which they were sitting in Pollok, Texas, said a spokeswoman for the Angelina County Sheriff's Department.

The death was in Monroe County, Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Greg Michel 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.

In Alabama, a possible tornado damaged some buildings, power lines and trees in the southeastern part of the state Sunday morning, according to the AP. A mobile home community was damaged, but no injuries are being reported.

The National Weather Service detected a possible twister on radar, but it's unclear whether a tornado or straight-line winds caused the damage.

The weather service said it will conduct storm surveys near Scranton and Ararat township, both in northern Pennsylvania; and in the town of Conklin, in NY.

The system moved eastward into MS, where the weather service says teams have confirmed eight tornadoes.

Reports suggest that Virginia averages three tornadoes in April. No fatalities were reported.

In addition, three people were killed when a private jet crashed in MS on Saturday, although Bryant said it was unclear whether it was caused by the weather. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving auto. Some thunderstorms continue moving through our region.

"The severe weather threat should be quickly winding down by late morning", the National Weather Service said. No injuries were reported, and news footage showed shattered windows and rooftop debris.

In East Texas, authorities say two children were killed when high winds toppled a tree onto the back of the family auto while it was in motion. The parents in the front seats were not hurt. Franklin is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.
