Microburst with 70-mph winds hits Southern Tier, but no tornado

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.

"The main threat will be damaging winds with the line, but an isolated tornado and isolated instances of flooding can not be ruled out as well", National Weather Service forecasters said.

"This line is capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and possibly an isolated tornado", the weather service said.

Multiple injuries were reported in the Robertson County town of Franklin, the NWS said.

John Moore, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Jackson, says a twister was reported Saturday in the Vicksburg area of MS and was indicated on radar.

At least seven people, including three children, have been killed after a series of devastating tornadoes swept through the South.

Damage to the town's schools has prompted the Alto Independent School District has canceled all classes until its buildings have been found to be safe.

Monroe County Road Manager Sonny Clay said a further 19 people have been injured.

About 90 million people are under the gun for destructive weather Sunday, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said. The other victims died in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

According to AccuWeather, the deadly storm system spawned "dozens of tornadoes" across the southern states.

A wave of severe storms moved across the Tennessee Valley early Sunday morning, leaving behind damage in many communities. More than two dozen people were injured and taken to hospitals.

Authorities say at least 11 tornadoes touched down in three states before the storm began moving towards the East Coast.

In Vicksburg, Mississippi, another possible tornado touched down. Separately, one person died when a auto was submerged in floodwaters in Calhoun, also near Monroe.

A tornado destroyed the Hamilton, Mississippi, Volunteer Fire Department on Saturday. "Scattered power outages can be expected", the National Weather Service says in its wind advisory.

As the storm moved into Alabama, a possible tornado knocked out power and damaged mobile homes in Troy, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Montgomery.
