Tornado Hits Alabama City Overnight, Damaging Homes And Businesses

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A tornado touched down in an Alabama city north of Birmingham, with significant damage reported, officials said.

The damage is being evaluated to determine the strength of the tornado, which hit the Fultondale area of Jefferson County late Monday night, the National Weather Service in Birmingham said.
