Unfortunately we have to report that a mother and her 3-year-old daughter were killed in Louisiana Sunday morning when extremely high winds or a possible tornado flipped their mobile home off its foundation.

Francine Gotch, 38, and her daughter, Neville Alexander, were inside the trailer when the storm hit the rural community of Breaux Bridge, about 50 miles west of Baton Rouge, St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office Maj. Ginny Higgins said.

“It hit the trailer, flipped it and tore its side off,” Higgins told the Associated Press.

Alexander’s dad had gone to the grocery store just before the storm occurred and arrived back home to find Gotch and his daughter dead, witnesses told KLFY-TV.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said powerful straight-line winds destroyed the mobile home. Typically after such damage, the National Weather Service (NWS) will investigate and determine if the damage was caused by a tornado or straight-line winds.

“It is an extremely dangerous weather event,” he said.

The governor put the entire state on “high alert” and warned residents to stay off the roads. He urged people to keep their cellphones charged and close by so that they could get severe weather alerts throughout Sunday night and Monday morning.

Parts of Arkansas and Mississippi were also under a threat of tornadoes, but the bullseye was on Louisiana. The system brought unconfirmed tornadoes to the state as well as heavy thunderstorms, large hail and flash flooding.

The NWS warned that it was a “particularly dangerous situation,” which the governor noted was a rare high-level warning. Straight line winds could reach upward of 80 mph winds. Hurricanes have at least 74 mph winds.

“This is a statewide weather event,” Edwards said. “It’s likely to be an all-night event. We don’t expect the weather system to leave the state of Louisiana until sometime tomorrow morning.”

National Weather Service meteorologist John Hart in Oklahoma said there was a significant risk of weather for Mississippi and Alabama as the system keeps moving east.

Fire officials in the Texas village of Point Venture said several people witnessed an apparent funnel cloud there Sunday morning. Travis County Emergency Services District 1 Fire Chief Donnie Norman said there were several structures with severe damage.

“There was one home with pretty heavy damage. The roof was completely removed. There was one resident there at the time, but she received no major injuries,” Norman said.

A Texas state trooper reported seeing a suspected tornado touch down early Sunday morning near Center Point, Texas, about 55 miles northwest of San Antonio, Texas. National Weather Service meteorologist Yvette Benavides said there were no reports of major or structural damage.

The City of Houston Office of Emergency Management released the following statement:

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Tornado Watch for most of southeast Texas, including Montgomery and Harris Counties until 6:00pm Sunday.

This means conditions are favorable for the formation of tornadoes throughout the area.  Houston residents should prepare in the event they have to seek shelter.

Additionally, Houston still remains under risk of heavy rainfall, damaging winds and hail as storm systems move through southeast Texas.

What Should I Do?

The City of Houston Office of Emergency Management (OEM) advises Houston residents to begin preparing for the potential impacts:

  • Remove all outdoor items which can be tossed by strong wind gusts and secure them.
  • Be prepared to stay in place if dangerous flooding occurs in your area.
  • Communicate with your family ahead of time about what to do in the event of severe weather.
  • Have a plan to shelter-in-place at your home, school or business.
  • Be prepared for Power Outages.  Make sure your family has working flashlights or battery-powered lanterns.  Also, sign up for CenterPoint Energy’s Power Alert Service to get the latest information on power restoration
  • If a TORNADO WARNING is issued for your area, seek shelter immediately in an interior room on the lowest floor possible. Remember, Get In. Get Low. Hold On.
  • If a FLASH FLOOD WARNING is issued for your area, seek higher ground and avoid travel until the warning expires.
  • If flash flooding occurs, avoid travel until the storm clears, and avoid low-lying areas.

Reporting Damage

If you see damage from the storm, when it is safe, report it to the 311 Help & Information Line by calling 311 (713-837-0311), online at houston311.org, or via the Houston 311 App for iOS and Android.
You can report:

  • Trees or debris in City roadways
  • Street Flooding
  • Flooding in Homes or Businesses

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center says the storms are likely to cause significant wind damage near the Interstate 20 corridor in east Texas and Louisiana throughout the day and into Sunday night. It says there is a risk of baseball-sized hail and tornadoes, including strong ones, in that area.

The weather service offices in Austin/San Antonio and Fort Worth had received reports of minor wind damage to trees, up to quarter-sized hail and minor flooding in south central Texas areas.

The storms will also pass through southern Arkansas and central and southern Mississippi.

Stay safe out there folks.

God Bless.
