BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham Mayor William Bell said there are no reports of injuries from severe weather that damaged roofs and broke windows in one part of the city.
The severe weather struck about 4:45 a.m. Monday in the area around Finley Avenue. Residents reported seeing a funnel cloud, but the mayor said officials have not yet confirmed if it was a tornado. He said the city is providing tarps to residents whose roofs were damaged.
Homeowner Clint Thornton told WBRC-TV that he was about to leave for work when he saw a funnel cloud. He said he got into a closet with his wife and started praying. The Thorntons are fine but nearly all the windows in their home are broken.
