Storms late Wednesday evening packed a powerful punch as they moved across north Alabama and southern Tennessee. Here's what the StormTracker Doppler Network looked like at 10pm last night.
Severe thunderstorm warnings and even a couple of tornado warnings accompanied the storms as they tracked through the area. We received several reports of downed trees, power outages, and flooding scattered around north Alabama and southern Tennessee.
Torrential rain fell in some areas. Here are the radar estimated rain amounts since 5pm Wednesday.
Some specific totals include 1.71" at Huntsville International Airport, .38" at the Muscle Shoals Airport, and 4.58" in New Hope. Radar estimated around 8" of rain in NE Jackson which led to major flooding problems around Bridgeport and Bryant.
Here's a look at all the reports of storm damage from last night:
