Trooper Liz Chapman said Decker was checking water levels during the storm when he was struck shortly before 4 a.m., but it wasn't known if he will be included as a storm-related death.

Governors in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma all declared a state of emergency because of the severe weather.

A second death was reported Sunday, though information about the circumstances was not immediately available.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Several southern states braced for more severe weather Monday in the wake of storms, tornadoes and flooding that claimed 16 lives and left authorities in Arkansas searching for two children swept away by raging waters.

Also in Arkansas, search and rescue teams are still searching for a four-year-old boy and his 18-month-old sister who were separated from their mother when the vehicle they were in was swept away, the Madison County Sheriff's Office told BuzzFeed News.

The authorities warned that severe storms potentially packing heavy winds, hail and tornadoes could hit parts of the mid-Atlantic and north-eastern U.S. by late yesterday.

Four people died in Texas on Saturday as the National Weather Service confirmed that four tornadoes slammed into several small towns east of Dallas.

I-70 in Kansas was closed due to a "rare late-season blizzard" that has dumped 3-4 inches of snow with strong winds.

A woman died when a tree fell on a mobile home in Arkansas and a two-year-old girl died in Tennessee after being struck by a soccer goalpost launched by heavy winds.

In Missouri, a 72-year-old Billings woman was swept away by high waters on Saturday, and two men ages 18 and 77 drowned in separate incidents on Sunday, emergency management spokesman Mike O'Connell said.

MS officials didn't immediately release details of the death near Durant.

McClain has also had several previous run-ins with the law in and around Decatur, where he attended high school. It was one of those "window tint violations" traffic stops they like to do around those Southern US parts.

The storms were expected to move into Alabama Sunday evening and continue along a path extending to MI. School employees are sandbagging around the building to try and keep the water out this time.

Fort Worth's Cliff Henthorn took this photo after Saturday's tornadoes in Canton, Texas. Rains killed at least one person in Missouri. Some people were told to evacuate and 33 rescues were conducted, mostly in the state's central and southwestern regions, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens said.

According to the associated Press, in Texas killed four people, three in Arkansas. The Rowlett Police Department and Fire-Rescue also said crews were also en route to Canton.

"We have at least four fatalities", Canton Mayor Lou Ann Everett said at a news conference on Sunday, adding that number could rise. The National Weather Service said at least five tornadoes struck Eustace, Caney City and Canton.

Her cousin said the loss was devastating. Six stayed hospitalized the first night after the storm; two of those were in critical condition.

The town of Canton, located about 50 miles east of Dallas, was hit especially hard.

'We'd be out there working and get a report of another tornado on the ground, ' Kirkpatrick said.

Middle Tennessee was hit by a strong line of storms that knocked down trees and power lines earlier Sunday.

A vehicle dealership in Texas was swept away Saturday night during a tornado, reported the NBC affiliate television station in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Dozens more were injured, according to USA officials.
