Severe weather moving through northern Alabama caused heavy damage in parts of Cullman and Lawrence counties and moderate damage in Blount County, but no injuries were immediately reported.
The National Weather Service reports a possible tornado Thursday downed trees and threw debris from Cullman to northeast of Holly Pond but meteorologist Chelly Amin says it's too early to confirm whether a twister actually touched down. She says teams will assess the areas Friday before making an official notification.
Amin says there were reports of moderate roof damage to a few structures in Cullman and reports of several trees down in the Bankhead National Forest in southern Lawrence County.
Several central and north Alabama counties remain under a tornado watch.
