4 die as storms sweep across southern US
    2019-04-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THREE children died in Texas and Louisiana on Saturday after powerful storms swept through the states, and forecasters warned severe weather could hit other parts of the southern U.S.

In Texas two children, ages 8 and 3, were killed when a tree fell on a car Saturday afternoon, trapping them inside, according to the Angelina County Sheriff’s Department. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

In West Monroe, Louisiana, a 13-year-old boy drowned in a drainage area in what officials believe was a weather-related incident, said Glen Springfield, spokesman for the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office. Several streets had been closed in the city of around 13,000 and a flood warning had been issued for the area, officials said.

A fourth person who died in the storms was a woman killed by weather-related debris near the community of Weches in Houston County, Texas, the sheriff’s office said.

In Franklin, Texas, a tornado touched down and destroyed homes Saturday, injuring about a dozen people. (SD-Agencies)
