Strong thunderstorms and tornados moved across south Alabama on Christmas Day in a very unusual episode of severe weather for this time of year.
The National Weather Service survey teams are out assessing damage at this time, and the Alabama Emergency Management Agency is compiling a list of damaged areas. Currently, the EMA says nearly a dozen counties are reporting damage.
The Storm Prediction Center has documented 15 tornado reports so far Tuesday. If that stands, it would be most ever on a Christmas Day, surpassing the 12 in 1969.
Here are the damage reports coming into our newsroom.
