Tornado Warnings, Severe Weather Across Gulf Coast

Alabama is bracing for another round of severe weather.

A line of strong thunderstorms moved into the already storm-battered state Monday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch until noon CST for more than 30 Alabama counties, including Jefferson, Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, Mobile and Baldwin counties.

A tornado warning was issued for Escambia County as another possible tornado moved from the Florida panhandle into Alabama. Radar also briefly indicated another possible tornado Monday morning in Monroe and Wilcox counties.

The severe weather threat comes to a state already besieged by flooding and storms fueled by unusually warm winter weather.

Birmingham spokesman April Odom said a Christmas night tornado damaged 72 structures when it touched down in the city. The damage ranged from minor to full destruction.
