A series of strong storms ripped through part of the South this weekend, bringing more weather damage to parts of Alabama and Kentucky already ravaged by tornadoes three weeks ago.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced a state of emergency as the storms tore through the state, with four confirmed tornado touchdowns from Saturday night into Sunday. Damages from the storms ranged from flash floods to power outages and property damage, according to NPR. No reports of death or injury were reported.
In Alabama, the string of storms knocked out power and downed trees in Hazel Green, outside of Huntsville. Much of the power has been restored but utility workers were still working to restore power to all of Hazel Green as of January 2.
In the town of Triana, about ten miles away, the storms knocked trees down and reports suggest about 280 people took cover in a local shelter. The storms come ahead of a snowstorm anticipated to drop several inches of snow in some parts of Kentucky.
