We have several. They'll wake you up every time, that's for sure.This photo was posted on the Hayden, Alabama News Facebook page, apparently taken from SW Blount County just west of I-65 looking toward Warrior. I had no idea this tornado was so close to the ground. I'm not sure if it ever touched down anywhere in North Jefferson or Blount Counties? I wasn't reading the forum feed just before this warning was issued, but when I scrolled back through, I noticed people mentioning that this storm needed a warning. We had a very brief heads up and had to get into the basement really quickly. The weather radio alerted us immediately; none of the apps I have installed alerted us for at least a few more minutes after the radio. I'm convinced the old-school weather radios are essential, even though they can be annoying when they blast in the middle of the night for a warning on the other side of the county.
