Homes and buildings damaged as storms roll across the South

Winfield Tornado Damage

WINFIELD, Ala. (AP) – Authorities in Alabama say that homes and buildings were damaged and trees were blown down as a line of intense thunderstorms rolled across several southern states.

The storms Wednesday brought the threat of tornadoes and high winds, and downtown Winfield was significantly damaged in the wake of a tornado around 6:30 p.m. No injuries haven been reported.

An emergency manager reported damage to structures in the west Alabama town of Winfield. In northeast Alabama, another emergency manager in Etowah County reported that a pole barn was destroyed and at least two homes were damaged during the storms.

Storms were still threatening parts of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina Thursday morning.
