DADEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Officials taking stock of damage from Wednesday night's tornado in Dadeville say they are lucky no one was killed or injured.
The National Weather Service confirms that a small tornado caused damage to homes and businesses on the northeast side of US 280. That's the Fulton Street neighborhood.
The weather service report says the F-1 tornado's damage path was 50 yards wide at its widest point, and its highest winds were estimated 90 miles per hour.
The storm uprooted trees and scattered debris, damaging homes and businesses.
Tallapoosa County Emergency Management director Joe Paul Boone says it struck about five p-m- and people were leaving work. He says the city is "just so lucky that we did not have anyone injured" or killed.
