Storms Bring Threat of Tornadoes to Alabama

Oct 1, 2012

Strong storms are bringing the threat of tornadoes to much of Alabama.

The National Weather Service says there's a marginal threat of twisters for areas near and east of Interstate 65 in Alabama on Monday morning.

Forecasters say the threat will virtually end for areas west of Montgomery by 11 a.m. Monday, as the storms push eastward.

However, the tornado threat will linger into the afternoon hours for Alabama counties near the Georgia state line.

The weather service said a tornado warning was issued for Coosa County around 5 a.m. Monday, but was later allowed to expire when the storm weakened below severe limits.
