TORRENTIAL RAINS SWAMP TUSCLAOOSA, TRAP MOTEL GUESTS
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Heavy overnight rains quickly swamped the west Alabama city of Tuscaloosa, covering roads with water and leaving guests stranded in a motel.
As much as 5 inches of rain fell in a brief period late Tuesday. The resulting flash flood filled cars with water and left people temporarily stranded at the Best Western motel near Interstate 20/59.
No injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service says more storms and heavy rains are possible across the state on Wednesday, but no severe weather is expected.
