Tornado damage reported, tornado watch continues


MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Tornado warnings in Mississippi and Mobile County and Baldwin County popped up early Sunday morning and the threat continues into the Florida Panhandle this morning. 

A Tornado Watch continues east of Interstate 65, but is being whittled away as a line of storms moves out of Mississippi and Alabama and into northwest Florida. Downpours with thunderstorms continue to move west to east across the area giving the threat of hail, damaging straight line wind, and even a tornado.

Flood Advisories cover much of the News 5 area. Street flooding and nuisance flooding is possible through about 8:30 this morning.

A Wind Advisory is in effect all day for gusts over 30 mph.

Some thunderstorms will be strong, and possibly severe. Severe means they could produce winds gusting well-over 60mph, large hail, and even a few tornadoes. Have a plan and a safety location for you, your family and your pets. Especially if you live in a mobile home or RV, you need to be able to get to permanent shelter quickly, or spend the night with someone you know in a solid building. It only takes one fallen tree to have an impact on a home, or on a neighborhood with power loss.

By this afternoon, we will be breezy, brighter and free of rain. Highs tomorrow stick in the lower 70s. Tomorrow night takes us into the 40s with Monday and Tuesday giving us sunshine, with highs in the 70s. We’ll be dry through Wednesday as highs near 80.

The next rain with thunderstorms will be on Thursday.
