Destructive storms and strong winds hit multiple states along the Gulf Coast on Tuesday.
Two of those confirmed deaths happened after a suspected tornado damaged dozens of trailers at an RV park in Convent, Louisiana.
"We all need to be prayerful and we need to be mindful of just how serious these incidents can be," Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said at a press conference.
Storms are expected to continue through Wednesday in the Carolinas, Florida and far southeast Virginia.
