  • First Alert Weather Day for Saturday-especially during the afternoon hours

A preliminary damage survey found that a tornado with peak intensity of EF-3 and winds up to 140 miles per hour touched down in Robertson County, according to a tweet from the National Weather Service in Forth Worth. This tornado had a clear TDS [tornado debris signature] with it. The eastern part of the state is listed as a "slight risk", meaning scattered, severe storms are possible.

In Texas, authorities said a woman died on Saturday night when a tornado destroyed her mobile home, CNN reported. No injuries have been reported, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged.

The threat of severe weather will likely increase throughout the day, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said. The system shifts to the Ohio Valley and the Southeast on Sunday. Earlier, two children died in East Texas after a tree fell on their moving auto.

Public Information Officer Glenn Springfield also confirmed to PEOPLE that over the weekend, a 13-year-old boy died in West Monroe, Louisiana, after drowning in a drainage area.

The storm system will lift northeast Sunday presenting a risk of strong to severe storms in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic.

The service also issued a flash flood warning for Sussex and Warren counties in North Jersey.

ABC News reported two more deaths after a tornado ripped through Hamilton, Mississippi.

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

"We were hit really, really, hard".

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.
