Mother Nature's strength is not to be ignored in Tuscaloosa.

Several straight days of rain are impacting several parts of the city and surrounding county.

Much of the rear parking lot of Tuscaloosa Total Health on Rice Mine Road is a total mess.

"We don't really know where the water is coming and we want it to stop because our whole parking lot is about to go," Sinclair went on to say.

Heavy rains also closed several roads in Tuscaloosa County Friday.

From South Sandy Road in Duncanville in southern Tuscaloosa County to Highway 216 in Lakeview in western Tuscaloosa County, water rushed over roadways.
