Possible tornadoes heavily damaged homes and buildings in rural west Alabama and flooded roads in Mobile County as a storm front moved through the state.

The rapidly moving storms caused some injuries but no deaths were reported deaths.

In Hale County two people were injured and dozens of homes and cars were damaged.

In Lowndes County, a possible tornado was spotted just after 2 a.m. Tuesday near Burkville, damaging several buildings, including a church.

Powerful winds also toppled power lines and uprooted trees in Dallas, Etowah, Bibb and Talladega counties.

In south Mobile County, storms yesterday brought torrential rain and high winds, flooding streets, downing trees and power lines and destroying at least one home.

The National Weather Service said two teams will survey the damage Tuesday in Hale, Lowndes and surrounding counties.
