Warnings issued, power knocked out in possible tornado

The storm cell moved from the Slocomb area toward Cottonwood but weakened substantially as it approached the Georgia line.
A strong thunderstorm prompted two tornado warnings Saturday afternoon affecting portions of Geneva and Houston Counties. The storm cell moved from the Slocomb area toward Cottonwood but weakened substantially as it approached the Georgia line.

Wiregrass Electric’s website, as of 4:15 pm, showed 75 customers without electricity. They were confined to a small area of southwest Geneva County. WDHN’s production director Mike Barfield reports heavy rain associated with the storm caused minor flooding. There are also reports of a few small trees down. Nobody has been reported injured.

Houston County EMA Director Steve Carlisle said a second tornado warning was issued at 4:17 pm Saturday, just two minutes after the first one expired. Carlisle said the warning sirens were sounded only in the Hodgesville and Cottonwood area for that warning. The earlier one prompted the sirens to be sounded in a much broader area. Carlisle said there have been no reports of damage in Houston County.
