JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. (KXAN/AP) — As the onetime Tropical Storm Cindy moves through the Southeast, Tornado Warnings are being issued for various areas.
Two tornado warnings have been issued by the National Weather Service in Alabama, where Gov. Kay Ivey says the threat of severe weather hasn’t let up as remnants of a tropical storm push inland.
One of the warnings was issued around 1 p.m. CDT Thursday in Jefferson County near Birmingham. The other was for Tuscaloosa and Bibb Counties. The weather service indicated that damage was likely from a possible twister near Birmingham, noting radar signaled there was debris in the air.
Photographs on social media showed what appeared to be a funnel cloud in the air in the Birmingham area.
Jim Stefkovich, a meteorologist with the Alabama Emergency Agency, said Cindy dumped three to six inches of rain on coastal Alabama with up to 12 inches in some spot. More rainfall was expected through the day.
“We are not done with the threat yet,” Stefkovich said.
