The fatal incident occurred in Angelina County.

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

There was widespread damage in Alto, a town of about 1,200, and the school district canceled classes until its buildings can be deemed safe.

"Damaging winds and some hail are also associated with these storms pushing through the Southeast this morning", Brink said. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometres) south of Dallas.

Multiple injuries were also reported in the town of Franklin, Texas where a large preliminary EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 miles per hour moved through the town on Saturday. Two people were hospitalized for injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene, Yezak said. Some people had to be extricated from their homes.

Heavy rains and storms continued to rake the Magnolia State into the night, moving into Alabama.

In Mississippi, authorities said there was one storm-related death in Monroe County. Another 19 were taken to hospitals, including two who were in critical condition.

"The survey is in relation to the severe thunderstorms that moved through the area on April 15th", the weather service said.

Several homes outside of Shelby were destroyed when a tornado touched down in Richland County on Sunday, according to News 5 media partner Times-Gazette.

Shelby is about 90 miles (144.83 kilometers) northeast of Cleveland.

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

Trees were pulled from the ground by their roots and the tornado caused structural damage to buildings including tearing off roofs.

The NWS says that Monday through to Saturday residents in those areas should expect isolated wind damage possibly tomorrow. Trees were down and at least some minor damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

The storms produced additional tornadoes throughout Louisiana and MS on Saturday night as the storm moved east threatening the upper Ohio Valley and central Appalachians to the upper Gulf Coast on Sunday, before moving to the mid-Atlantic.

In Jefferson County, a county worker was killed early Sunday when he was hit by a vehicle while trying to clear a downed tree from the roadway. His name was not immediately released.

In preparation for the inclement weather reaching Georgia, the Augusta National announced it would move up the start time on Sunday for Round 4 of the Masters in hope that play would finish before thunderstorms reached the golf course, according to CBS.
