At least six people were confirmed dead in Alabama’s Autauga County, about 66 kilometers northeast of Selma, and an estimated 40 to 50 homes were damaged by the storm, said Ernie Baggett, the county’s managing director of emergency services. Baggett told The Associated Press that at least 12 people were seriously injured and taken to hospital by emergency services.
He said crews were working on Thursday evening to clear fallen trees to search for people who needed help. Autauga County Coroner Buster Barber said late Thursday, “Many homes have been completely destroyed, which is not even known yet.” Debris clearance continues.” According to ‘Power Outages US’, about 40,000 people spent the night without power in Alabama on Thursday.
