Tornado Warning

 Cullman/Morgan

SORRY - This was a mistake, that a broadcaster made and that I jumped on before double-checking. 

This looks like it is continuing . . . hang on, I'm not sure what's going on. Trying to find the official warning from Huntsville office. 

1:01 AM - Here we go, I believe this confused the broadcaster . . . this looks like only an update to the existing warning for Southeast Madison and parts of Marshall and Jackson Counties.



1:03 - Here we are, you can see the warning polygon. Respect the warnings tonight. Also all these severe thunderstorm warnings, even if they do not try to rotate/produce a tornado, I'd play it safe and be in a reasonably safe spot. 

Sometimes the rotation broadens out but it also tightens up again. Looks like this is mainly about to move into Jackson County if it holds together. It is about to cross Highway 431. 

1:08 AM - Broaden it out, wide view of the squall line. The storms are almost out of Madison County now. If you're in places like Cullman, Hanceville, Dodge City, up into Marshall, Dekalb, and Jackson Counties, would be a good idea to be in a reasonably safe place from these severe thunderstorm warnings for damaging straight-line winds. 

And of course if this possible tornado rotation holds together, absolutely stay sheltered for that as long as it lasts and you are in the path. 

Because we had another damage report from Hartselle from earlier, possible tornado there and maybe some injuries.
