At least 11 tornadoes have touched down in three different states as a result of a stronger-than-usual storm system.
According to the National Weather Service, the tornado was rain-wrapped and moved through Milam into Robertson County.
The tree "flattened the auto like a pancake", said Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office. No injuries have been reported, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged.
Yezak says two of the people injured Saturday when a likely tornado touched down near the cities of Hearne and Franklin were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
"It looks like a storm came up through Louisiana and into MS and exploded in Monroe County", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said.
Tornado warnings remained in effect on Sunday for southeastern Alabama's Barbour and Russell counties, Oravec said.More news: George R.R. Martin Reflects On "Game Of Thrones" Final Season

A tornado hit the small Central Texas city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences, said Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak.
Flash floods hit Louisiana, where two deaths were reported. Alto is about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Houston.
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a moderate risk (level 4 out of 5) for severe weather Saturday across parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley.
The Washington Post went on to report that an elderly man was killed "when a tree fell on his trailer in Hamilton, Mississippi".
"The storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark", Myers said. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas. Crews were sent to survey the damage. Some people had to be extricated from damaged dwellings. The center said it expects the threat of severe weather to increase throughout the day.
Ponding on roadways could also impact the morning commute, and high winds Monday of up to 50 miles per hour could also make it harder for crews to clean up any damage from the overnight storms, the service said.
