Storms Bring Threat of Some Wind Damage to Alabama
Wind damage was reported after a severe weather system moved across Alabama Friday morning.
However, forecasters said the chances for tornadoes appeared to be diminishing.
A hazardous weather advisory said the storms could produce isolated damaging winds as the system moved from Alabama to Georgia Friday afternoon, and there was "a very small chance" for an isolated tornado.
Meteorologists based in Huntsville and Birmingham say no tornadoes had been reported in the state as of Friday evening. However, forecasters said they recorded an EF-1 tornado with a top wind speed of 105 mph in Lincoln and Moore counties, in Tennessee. Officials say the twister left a path of destruction just under 7 miles long.
