People throughout the South are cleaning up today after another round of severe weather stuck the region over the weekend. At least one tornado and severe thunderstorms tore through portions of north and central Alabama, waking people up in the middle of the night with vivid lightning, loud thunder and tornado warning sirens. A Tuscumbia man was killed when winds knocked a tree limb onto his truck while he was repairing it. There are no reports of other deaths or injuries, but damage has been reported in Marion, Winston, and Cullman counties, with downed trees and power lines in many areas. At peak, there were more than 17,000 people without power because of the storms. Still hundreds are in the dark and Alabama Power says crews will be working to get customers back on today. Meterologist John DeBlock of the National Weather Service in Birmingham says the storms again hammered many of the same areas that’ve been hit this severe weather season.
