Jace Creel, 3, and Dilynn Creel, 8, the Texas brothers killed in south-ripping tornadoes, have been identified on social media as young boys crushed to death on Saturday in the family's car by a tree overthrown in Lufkin, Texas. Their parents survived.

A woman named Kirsten Redd wrote on Facebook that her son was "best friend" with Dilynn since childhood.

The 13-year-old boy who drowned in a drainage canal in Louisiana on Saturday was identified as Sebastian Omar Martinez. Deputy Glenn Springfield of the Sheriff's Department at Ouachita Parish said Sunday that the teenager died during a sudden flood in the community of Bawcomville near Monroe.
