Tornado leaves six dead, including three children, as storm system batters US

____________________________________________________________________

Deadly tornadoes that twisted through the Southern United States have killed at least three children, among the six dead in the monster storm.

Two siblings aged 3 and 8, were killed when a tree fell on the car they were in, in Pollok, Texas during the monster storm, a spokeswoman for the Angelina County Sheriff's Department said.

Authorities confirmed a third child had died as the massive storm system began drenching East Coast states.

Sebastian Omar Martinez, 13, drowned late on Saturday when he fell into a drainage ditch fill with flash floodwaters near Monroe, Louisiana, said Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office.

In another storm death nearby, an unidentified victim's body was trapped in a vehicle submerged in floodwaters in Calhoun,Louisiana, Springfield confirmed.

ABC News reported two others also died after another tornado ripped through Hamilton, Mississippi, amid the onslaught of twisters that pummeled the south.

A spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office this afternoon said authorities were in Hamilton and could not be reached for confirmation.

The massive storm pressed east later on Sunday, threatening to drench communities from New York to Atlanta and snarl the start of the work week.

A tornado touched down and spun toward Enigma, Georgia, on Sunday, after 17 twisters were reported on Saturday and Sunday across the South from Texas to Alabama.

More than 100 million people from the middle of the United States to the East Coast were at risk of extreme weather, facing warnings of heavy thunderstorms and another round of tornadoes, said meteorologist Bob Oravec of the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center.

"So much of the Eastern United States faces the risk of severe weather today, and that includes major cities," Oravec said.

"We'll be seeing severe weather from Florida to New York, with the most unstable parts so far in Georgia," said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center.

Nearly 6,000 U.S. flights were canceled or delayed, with most of the trouble at airports in Chicago, Dallas and Charlotte, North Carolina, according to FlightAware.com.

Snow was falling in Chicago on Sunday, with 1 to 3 inches reported in central Illinois, as a result of the storm's cold front.

Tornado warnings remained in effect on Sunday for southeastern Alabama's Barbour and Russell counties, Oravec said.

"It's still a pretty impactful day today. This morning there is a lot of heavy rain moving through Alabama, into Georgia and eastern Tennessee. There are a few tornado warnings and heavy thunderstorm warnings," Oravec said.
