Two children, siblings aged 3 and 8, were killed 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. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving vehicle.

Police in Monroe County earlier described the destruction from the storm Saturday evening.

By late Saturday, the storms were expected to organize into a line as they cross the western border of Mississippi.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency warned of a confirmed tornado around Saturday night. The children, ages 3 and 8, were killed when a tree fell on a auto Saturday.

The 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in West Monroe late Saturday afternoon, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office said.

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

The weather service also says preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 mph touched down in Franklin, located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.
