BIRMINGHAM — The National Weather Service in Birmingham deployed a team to survey storm damage across Alabama Sunday, April 14.
In the early morning hours, tornadoes and strong winds associated with severe thunderstorms caused widespread power outages and damage. The line of storms also caused localized flooding in some spots. The system moved out of east Alabama by 10 a.m. Sunday.
In Troy, survey teams reported that homes in a mobile home park along Hunters Mountain Parkway were damaged. Damage was also seen along Highway 31. Power poles were downed and at least one vehicle was overturned. The NWS said that damage was caused by a tornado.
Troy University reported damage and said no students were hurt in the storms.
Storm reports also came from Shelby County, southeast Tuscaloosa County, southern Hale County and southeast Etowah County. Additional survey teams will be sent out Monday and possibly Tuesday to complete those damage reports.
Anyone who has damage in an area not listed should contact their local EMA office.
