Weather Damage

At least one person was killed and nine were injured when a line of strong storms rolled through south Alabama Tuesday evening and an apparent tornado touches down in Abbeville.

High winds damaged a high school and storefront in Abbeville and temporarily left the Henry County Courthouse without power.

Henry County Coroner Derek Wright said rescue workers found a body in the wreckage. The victim was not immediately identified.

Police in Abbeville, located in Henry County in southeast Alabama, said an apparent twister touched down behind the local high school at about 5:45 p.m.

In Daphne, police said a sea wall collapsed at the Sea Cliff Condominium complex on U.S. 98, and the roof was blown off a nearby convenience store. There were reports of trees down in a subdivision.

The damage occurred while Baldwin County was under a tornado warning, but it was not immediately known whether a tornado hit the town.
