Tornado destroyed multiple homes in Slocomb

SLOCOMB, Ala.(WTVY)- At least one mobile home was demolished on State Highway 103, luckily no one was living in it.

Another mobile home was lifted and shifted from its foundation
and an RV was flipped on the same property.

Just down the road a galvanized steel tower was completely bent over and appliances from one home thrown a quarter of mile away.

Some of the worst damage was done to a home with three people inside.

The roof was ripped off and debris thrown about the property.

While the damage path is wide through Geneva County only minor injuries have been reported.

Tony Helms, the Geneva County Sheriff says "We are blessed, compared to the other counties, Geneva County has been blessed and just the amount of volunteers that were out here last night not only in the public safety but just other citizens helping other citizens and this morning as I've been out assessing damage just neighbors helping neighbors and cleaning up its just great county it really is".
