There is an enhanced risk of severe weather across most of the Mid-South.

Saturday's storm roughed up the small community of Walnut, pop. 3,000, not far from the state line with Tennessee.

An apparent tornado touched down Saturday afternoon near Carlisle, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Little Rock and the second storm was near the unincorporated community of Slovak, southeast of Carlisle, said National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Goudsward.

A broader area that includes more than 10 million people - stretching from east Texas to Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky - is at a slightly lower risk of severe storms and tornadoes.

National Weather Service meteorologist Marlene Mickelson, based in Memphis, Tennessee, says there were no reports of deaths or injuries though the winds were strong enough to cause the building damage. Forecasters said numerous affected areas were also at risk of flooding. Up to two inches (5 centimeters) of rain is expected in northern Alabama.

The severe weather threat ends across northeast MS during the early evening. It was the deadliest to hit the US since May 2013, when an EF5 twister killed 24 people in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore.

There were no reports of any deaths or injuries from the widespread storms, which came almost a week after a large tornado killed 23 people in Alabama amid an outbreak of Southern twisters.
