The National Weather Service says at least four tornadoes touched down in Alabama during this week's storms, including an EF-2 tornado that flung a semitrailer onto the roof of an industrial plant in the Fort Payne area.
The Fort Payne-area twister was brief but powerful, with estimated winds up to 125 mph. Survey crews from the weather service say it flipped three large semitrailers, vaulting one into the air and onto the factory's roof around 12:30 a.m. Friday.
Powerful thunderstorms that moved across Alabama have left more flooding and toppled trees across the state.
Forecasters at the National Weather Service said rains of around 1 inch fell within 30 minutes during Tuesday's storms in the Montgomery area. That led to at least one location -- East Ogden Avenue and Norman Bridge Road -- impassable as water flowed across the road.
The weather service also received reports of several trees down and some minor structural damage in the Cloverdale community of Montgomery.
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.
