Just drove home from work and the South Parkway construction is like a bad video game where you have to dodge orange barrels and porta potties.It's been a good while since we've have sustained winds and gusts like this in North Alabama. It turned my umbrella into a twizzler, has large branches and foliage in the streets, and some power outages. In Huntsville there's a large section of University Drive (US 72) that's pitch black, no street lights, nothing. I watched a large sign get ripped from a railing and had to swerve to avoid debris on the roads on the way home from work. Thankfully there's not a lot of people on the roads and there hasn't been a large number of car accidents in the area today.
Glad to hear your mom is okay! Hope everyone else is as well.Storm survey confirmation of two brief EF0's in Baldwin, one near Elberta and one in Foley. About a mile from mom's apartment, actually. Had some injuries in an RV park and required extrication according to news reports.
