Houston County damage, state deaths in severe weather outbreak
Lines of severe thunderstorms are responsible for isolated damage that occurred Tuesday morning in southeast Alabama.
In Houston County, a home in Madrid, near the Florida border, received damage from high winds, possibly a tornado. Several trees elsewhere in the county also tumbled when gusts reached 60-80 miles per hour.
There were several reports of hail, including a viewer report from the Level Plains area of Dale County
The same system killed a north Alabama couple Monday and injured several others, including a seven year old girl.
“This morning, I began the process of calling local leaders who were affected by last night’s storm. I join the community of Town Creek in grieving the loss of a husband and wife. While most of us slept through the storm, a family is waking up today devastated. I will be praying for their family and the community, and I offer any assistance from the state that is available as they start the process of rebuilding,” Governor Kay Ivey said in a statement
