The line just moved through Florence. Didn't hear any thunder and the wind wasn't all that bad but the rain was intense.
I'm a little confused about these lines of storms. At 4pm WSFA (Montgomery) sent a text: "New timing info on tonight's storms - trending a bit later".
They were already saying it would be after midnight & now, "later" than midnight. Yet storms are already in Florence.
Are we talking more than 1 line of storms?
An ongoing issue with US Hwy 231 in Morgan Co. AL has been worsened thanks to recent high rainfall. For over a year now ALDOT has been monitoring the status us of the highway as large cracks have appear on highway on the side of Brindlee Mountain. Appears that overnight the issue has become bad enough that ALDOT has now closed Hwy 231 and are now detouring traffic via a few roads that weren't really designed for that much traffic. Hope they can actually engineer a solution to this situation fast as Hwy 231 is the major North/South through Huntsville.

ALDOT released a new statement that the road will be closed indefinitely. Sounds like they are finally going to dig in and try to fix this for real. SOOOOOOO glad I don't make that commute everyday anymore.HWY 231 has had that same issues every time it rains really heavy. I wonder if Underground caves are falling or what is going on under neath, but this has been an issues for as long as I have traveled 231 in the past.
