The other victims died in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

There were reports of multiple injuries in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said, and KWTX reported widespread damage there.

The next round of severe weather, including tornadoes, damaging winds and hail, is expected to start later this week when a potent storm moves from the Rockies into the Central Plains.

Officials said Carter Lumber Company sustained "extensive damage" and a boat was lifted off the ground.

"The severe weather threat should be quickly winding down by late morning", the National Weather Service said. The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says an 8-year-old and 3-year-old died after the tree hit the back of the vehicle in Lufkin, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston. Thirteen-year-old Sebastian Omar Martinez drowned in a drainage canal in Bawcomville, said Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Department, the AP reports.

Trees and power lines were knocked over and parts of buildings were left hanging across utility lines in Troy. The Stafford County Sheriff's Office said the unidentified woman, 78, had been asleep when the tree fell at 1:43 a.m.

About 90 million people are under the gun for destructive weather Sunday, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said.

Almost 2,300 U.S. flights were cancelled, more than 90% of them at airports in Chicago, Houston, Texas, Charlotte, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Ohio and a dozen major airports on the Eastern Seaboard.

"A second tornado has been confirmed in far southern Colbert County near the Crooked Oak community", the National Weather Service continued.

The tornado downed trees near the Mississippi State University campus. We have a lot of flooding.

A pine tree lies across what remains of a trailer on Center Hill Road outside of Hamilton, Miss., after a deadly storm moved through the area on Sunday. Right now forecasters are thinking the storms could arrive in the state by Thursday afternoon and last into Thursday evening.
