Over the weekend, a total of 17 tornadoes were reported hitting states from Texas to Alabama, the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center Bob Oravec told Reuters.

University spokesman Sid Salter said some debris, possibly carried by the tornado, was found on campus, but no injuries were reported and no buildings were damaged. Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs torn off buildings and the cinder block foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco.

As of early Sunday, all of Franklin and its neighboring city of Bremond were without electricity.

Multiple injuries were also reported in the town of Franklin, Texas where a large preliminary EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 miles per hour moved through the town on Saturday.

The large storm system also knocked out power to thousands and caused some flash flooding. Rain chances will continue to decrease through Sunday night with lows falling to the mid 50s.

The energy from warm afternoon temperatures will diminish, but the risk for tornadoes will not be over.

Tornadoes at that time can be especially unsafe since they are hard to see and people are less likely to receive warnings while they're asleep.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Miss., area. The center said it expects the threat of severe weather to increase throughout the afternoon. However, a few storms may reach severe limits in South Mississippi and may be capable of isolated damaging wind gusts and tornadoes.

The storm system will lift northeast Sunday presenting a risk of strong to severe storms in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic.

The storms produced additional tornadoes throughout Louisiana and MS on Saturday night as the storm moved east threatening the upper Ohio Valley and central Appalachians to the upper Gulf Coast on Sunday, before moving to the mid-Atlantic.
