Severe weather moved across south Alabama early Sunday morning, and reports of damage are starting to come in. Crenshaw County Emergency Management Agency Director Agency Director Earl Thompson says there's an obvious storm path with damage. Thompson said a house on Gin Creek Road in Crenshaw County is a complete loss with only the frame still standing and vehicles in the yard were also destroyed. Several chicken houses on Mitchell Road were destroyed. Barns on Mount Ida Road were damaged as well. Several power lines are still down, but all roadways seem to be clear. There are no reports of injuries. Viewers commenting on WSFA's Facebook say there were trees downed, chicken houses and other possible homes damaged. There was more than one comment about power being out in the Glenwood community. Also, Alabama Power confirms that approximately 200 APC customers are without power as a result of the overnight weather; 87 of them were in the Tallassee area. Tornado warnings were issued for Conecuh, Covington, Crenshaw and Pike counties between 2:15 a.m. and 4 a.m. as a tornadic thunderstorm cell moved rapidly northeastward across that area. Tornado warnings were also issued for Dale and Henry counties between 6:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. but no reports of possible damage are in yet for those areas.
