Tornado Alabama 2012, Apparent tornadoes destroyed houses, sent people to hospitals and tore up the roof of a maximum security prison in northern Alabama as bad weather threatened more twisters across the region Friday, two days after a storm system killed 13 people in the Midwest and South.
Anxiety mounted from Georgia to southern Ohio across a wide swath where forecasters said severe weather could hit later in the day. Thousands of schoolchildren in several states were sent home early as a precaution. Meanwhile, residents in parts of Illinois hit hard by the previous round of storms salvaged what they could from damaged homes.
In the Huntsville area, at least four people were taken to area hospitals, and several houses were leveled by what authorities believed were tornadoes Friday morning. The extent of the people’s injuries wasn’t immediately known, and emergency crews were continuing to survey damaged areas. WAFF-TV aired video of crushed homes.
An apparent tornado also damaged a state maximum security prison about 10 miles from Huntsville, but no inmates escaped. Alabama Department of Corrections spokesman Brian Corbett said there were no reports of injuries, but the roof was damaged on two large prison dormitories that each hold about 250 men.
“It was reported you could see the sky through the roof of one of them,” Corbette said.
A portion of the prison fence was knocked down, but the prison was secure, he said.
