Videos show roofs blown off homes, trees down after another severe weather outbreak in the South
At least 2 people were killed during the multiday severe weather outbreak
For the third week in a row, a multiday severe weather outbreak has wreaked havoc across the storm-fatigued South, leaving trails of destruction across several states.
The event began Monday across North Texas and Oklahoma, where several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were issued.
One person was killed in Whitehouse, Texas, late Monday night when severe weather moved through the area with strong winds that knocked down trees and power lines across the region.

Heavy rain also led to flooding in the Dallas suburb of McKinney, Texas, where emergency crews needed to rescue four people when their vehicles were swept away by the fast-moving water.
Luckily, no injuries were reported.
The severe weather then moved into the Deep South and Southeast on Tuesday, where areas from Mississippi to South Carolina saw more than three-dozen reports of tornadoes.
One storm moved through the Newton, Mississippi, area Tuesday morning and left significant destruction in its wake.
Crews worked hard to remove debris that closed roads across the region.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation also released a video that showed an apparent tornado passing their district office in Newton.
The storms moved into Georgia and South Carolina through Tuesday afternoon and evening, spawning more tornadoes that leveled buildings and brought down trees and wires.
The National Weather Service reported one person was killed during a tornado in Pembroke, Georgia.
The tornado is believed to have been an EF-3 with winds of at least 136 mph.
Not far away, a rare Tornado Emergency was issued in Allendale, South Carolina, on Tuesday afternoon.
Because the tornado struck in a rural community, only about a handful of homes were either damaged or destroyed.
Emergency management reported only three injuries with the storm, and officials were still accessing the damage.
"This is only the second-ever tornado emergency issued by NWS Charleston," said Greg Diamond, Senior Weather Producer and Meteorologist. "The other one was in 2020 for Walterboro, South Carolina. That one ended up being an EF-1."
