Tornado touched down in central Pa. county, National Weather Service says

WATCH Devastation Wrought by Deadly Tornado in Texas

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

An EF-1 tornado was confirmed near Buffalo Valley in East Buffalo Township.

In Central Texas, Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a tornado hit the small city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences.

"The storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark", Myers said. Four other people were injured after the trailer was struck.

Franklin, Texas, was the victim of a large preliminary EF-3 tornado which caused winds of 140mph to devastate the town, causing significant damage.

Two wind gusts as powerful as 80 miles per hour were reported in the Salem County township of Lower Alloways Creek by the New Jersey Weather & Climate Network between 3:25 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. Mississippi State University's 21,000 students huddled in basements and hallways as a tornado came near the school's campus in Starkville.

But tornadoes aren't the only possible cause of destruction Sunday.

Trees and power lines were knocked over and parts of buildings were left hanging across utility lines in Troy.

The storms - containing heavy rains, lightning and strong winds - swept across the South Sunday after unleashing suspected tornadoes and flooding that killed at least eight people, injured dozens and flattened much of a Texas town.

In addition, three people were killed when a private jet crashed in MS on Saturday. Toppled trees are blocking streets.

ABC News reports that some 90,000 people across Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Georgia were without power as of mid-day Sunday. They were in the back seat with their parents in the front, Angelina County Sheriff's Department Capt. Alton Lenderman said.

This story has been corrected to show Hamilton, Mississippi is about 140 miles southwest of Memphis, Tennessee, not 60 miles.
