A line of storms early Sunday morning has claimed two lives in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana following a possible tornado.

A mother and her 3-year-old daughter were killed Sunday morning when a mobile home flipped according to the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office. The incident occurred around 9:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Zin Zin Road. The victims have been identified as Francine Gotch, 38, and her daughter, Nevaeh Alexander, 3.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards 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.
