Possible tornadoes cause heavy damage in at least 2 Alabama counties

Around the South

CULLMAN, Alabama (AP/WNCN) — Severe weather moving through Alabama caused heavy damage in parts of Cullman and Lawrence counties and moderate damage in Blount County, but no injuries have been reported.

The National Weather Service reports a possible tornado Thursday downed trees and threw debris from Cullman to northeast of Holly Pond.

However meteorologist Chelly Amin says it’s too early to confirm whether a twister actually touched down. She says teams will assess the areas Friday before making an official notification.

Video posted by Jimmy Harrell to WIAT’s Twitter page showed what appeared to be a tornado near Jacksonville, Alabama Trooper Post.

Damage was also seen in photos from Springville, Alabama.

Amin says there were reports of moderate roof damage to a few structures in Cullman and reports of several trees down in the Bankhead National Forest in southern Lawrence County.

Several central and north Alabama counties remain under a tornado watch.
