Not such a great start to the day in the Shoals.  Just before 7 a.m. winds and rain uprooted a large tree on Walnut Street in downtown Florence.

The tree landed on a Jeep Wrangler parked across the street.

Florence Street Department employees responded to the scene to clear the debris.

The road had to be shut down for a couple of hours.
