At least 8 die from strong storms in South


Two more deaths have been blamed on the weekend storms that ravaged the South, bringing the death toll to at least eight.
One of the deaths in East Texas was that of a person initially among those injured when a tornado tore through the Caddo Mound State Historical Site during a Native American cultural festival Saturday. Cherokee County Judge Chris Davis says the woman has died of her critical injuries.
The National Weather Service says a tornado rated EF-3 with winds of about 140 mph tore through the Caddo Mound area.
In neighboring Houston County, the sheriff’s office has confirmed one person was killed in Weches, some 6 miles southwest of Caddo Mound.
