BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The tornado watch issued for several east Alabama counties earlier today has been canceled.

According to the NWS, there was a EF-0 tornado that touched down in Coosa at 5 a.m. Monday morning. There are no damaged or injury reports.

The counties that fell under the now canceled watch included: Cullman, Blount, Etowah, St. Clair, Talladega, Calhoun, Cherokee, Coosa, Clay, Randolph, Cleburne, Tallapoosa, Chambers, DeKalb, Jackson, Macon, Montgomery, Russell, Elmore, Lee, Madison, Morgan, Marshall and Limestone.

A tornado watch means there is a chance that a tornado could develop within the watch zone. However, as of 2 p.m. there were no issued warnings. There is a chance for some thunderstorms to develop later Monday afternoon as the temperatures warm up and the instability increases.
