Tornado hits small Texas town, seven reported hurt

At least one woman, who was pulled from the wreckage of her mobile home, sustained life-threatening injuries when the twister hit, USA Today reported.

Local television station KWTX-TV reported at least two mobile homes were damaged by the tornado, cars were overturned and power lines were down, leaving many of the town’s 1,500 residents without electricity.

Power outages were reported in nearby communities as thunderstorms pounded the state and a swath of the U.S. South.

Franklin is about 65 miles (105 km) southeast of Waco, Texas.

The National Weather Service on Saturday issued warnings of enhanced risk of severe weather for parts of Texas, Louisiana, southern Arkansas, Mississippi and western Alabama.

Bob Oravec, a meteorologist for the service’s Weather Prediction Center, said the agency rarely issues risk levels that high – level four on their five-step scale, meaning long-lived, widespread and intense storms are likely.

Oravec said the storms were expected to continue into the evening before moving east by Sunday morning, where they will stretch from the Ohio Valley and into the Southeast.
