Just spoke with Robert Fullerton. He has informed me that news agencies and EMA have reported a tornado on the ground with debris indicating possible structural damage. The tornado is traveling to the east of I-65 and just north of Lindsey Lane BC and moving toward Ardmore, AL. Dr. Fullerton commented that this area is heavily populated. D/R Assessors are making their way into the area to report. I am placing additional resources on ALERT status to assist as needed. I am awaiting further information from ground personnel.

At least five people were killed and hundreds of homes — and at least two churches — were destroyed or damaged when tornadoes struck several Alabama communities on March 25.
