The cleanup and the mourning process continues from weekend storms that tore through Texas.

From an EF-2 tornado that ripped apart the East Texas town of Alto, to a storm in franklin that leveled homes to the deaths of two children in Pollok, this has been a very devestating weekend.

The children, ages three and eight, were in a car with their parents when a tree fell on top of it.

The mother and father both able to get away, but the children died. 

In Alto Friday night, an EF 2 tornado tore through that town, damaging 27 homes.

An EF 1 tornado also hit the town of Reklaw Friday.

In Franklin yesterday, about a dozen people were injured after a suspected EF 3 tornado damaged or destroyed several homes.
