TENNESSEE VALLEY – Several areas of north Alabama were hit by severe storms late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.  Homes were destroyed and three people died in a tornado that hit Jackson County. Others were injured in northeast Alabama as well as northwest Alabama, in Colbert County.

The National Weather Service has teams surveying damaged areas today.

Preliminary survey results show EF-2 damage with the tornado in Franklin and Colbert Counties Tuesday evening.  The Huntsville/Madison County tornado is a preliminary EF-2, and the Rosalie/Ider tornado in Jackson and DeKalb Counties also has a ‘preliminary’ EF-2 rating in Rosalie and EF-3 in Ider.  More surveys are planned for Morgan, Marshall and Cullman Counties on Thursday.

There is significant damage in other counties, including Morgan and Madison. There are also a number of power outages still, too.
