Storms Blast State; No Serious Injuries Reported

Montgomery, Alabama – In Alabama today it is the calm after the storm. The good news is that there are no reports of any lives being lost overnight during the stormy weather that hit the state in two waves beginning around 6:00 p.m.

National Weather Service Forecaster John DeBlock says watches and warnings were declared well into the night as officials kept a close watch on radar looking for dangerous elements including a "hook echo" indicating rotations. There are no confirmed touchdowns, but National Weather Service officials are out today looking at areas in Dallas County and in the South Alabama area of Geneva County.

In Dallas County, investigators are looking into reports of a Church being damaged and homes damaged along Alabama Highway 140.

The storm moved out of Alabama around midnight Wednesday and into neighboring Georgia. Georgia officials say one person was killed in Hancock County in east central Georgia.
