Flood warnings continue after stormy weekend


Flood warnings continue after a stormy weekend that included a tornado in north Alabama.

The National Weather Service says warnings were issued for the Tennessee River west of Florence and south of Huntsville.

Forecasters say minor flooding is possible through Saturday as the river rises in northwestern Alabama. The weather service says lowland flooding also is likely south of Huntsville until Friday afternoon in the Whitesburg area near Huntsville.

The flooding potential follows storms that included a small tornado in Cullman County on Saturday night.

The weather service says an EF-1 twister with winds up to 100 mph left a path of damage more than 4 miles long and 200 yards wide in the Jones Chapel community. A house and several farm buildings were damage, but no injuries were reported.
