Windstorm

Cleanup continues in Columbia, Alabama after a high windstorm destroyed several downtown buildings with wind gusts of more than 50 miles per hour early Saturday morning.

A mobile home was destroyed when a tree was uprooted and fell on top of it. Winds also knocked out several windows downtown along with tearing down signs. Some buildings suffered severe structural damage when the roofs collapsed. And electricity had to be restored to several homes in the city.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.

The National Weather Service is investigating if the damage was caused by straight-line winds.

March is typically considered the beginning of the severe weather season.
