Storm Brings Flood Threat to Central Alabama

A severe thunderstorm packing a threat of tornadoes moved across Alabama this afternoon, dumping up to four inches of rain that could bring flooding to some counties.

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings throughout the
afternoon for central and east Alabama, but there were no immediate
reports of any twister touching down as the storm system rolled
into Georgia.

Runoff from the heavy rain could flood some creeks, roadways and low-lying areas. The weather service issued a flash flood warning for Elmore, Lowndes, Montgomery, Bullock, Macon and Pike counties.

Meanwhile, springlike temperatures were expected to drop Monday.
