Severe T-Storm Warning


11 AM - Back online and catching up some. 

11:05 - Now from about Pulaski back to Decatur, Moulton, Cullman, Double Springs, Jasper, all the way down to Tuscaloosa, this line is on its way through these areas. And quickly pushing East. Main threat is damaging thunderstorm winds, and they had a history of damage and injury today, including some structural damage as well as trees and power lines. So even if you do not get a tornado warning, please shelter in a small central room or hallway on the lowest floor of a sturdy house (not a mobile home), away from windows. Cover your head and protect body in case of debris if you have time. Main thing is get as low and as near the center as you can in the house and away from glass. 

11:11 - Lamar and Marion counties cleared from the tornado watch . . . severe threat over once squall line passes. Keep getting confirmed reports of trees and power lines down from this line of storms. Heard of a few injuries, one was from a tree falling on a home. Definitely worth sheltering for until line is past and winds have died down. 



11:12 - Ok now Madison, Ardmore, Fayetteville need to be taking shelter. 

11:17 - Trees down as far East as Walker and Jefferson counties, could have wind gusts up to 50 mph even before line gets to you . . . 

11:19 - About 35,000 customers without power already. Thanks to James Spann for passing that along.
