Significant damage to the Decatur area as storms move through the city overnight
DECATUR, Ala. – One area hit hard during last night storms was the Hard Dock Marina on the Tennessee River.
High winds ripped the awning off the building, sending metal flying across Highway 31. At least 15 boats were damaged.
Just down the road on 6th Avenue, Saputo Dairy Foods lost part of its roof. Police and fire rescue had to shut down the road for about an hour to clean up the debris.
Other streets around the River City were blocked off due to large trees being knocked down.
Decatur firefighters spent most of the night with chain saws trying to clear the roads.
Police say one person was injured during these storms.
