Warrior and Morris city crews and law enforcement were working in Kimberly Monday night and Tuesday, and Morris Mayor Joe Pylant and other volunteers were traveling throughout Kimberly on a pickup truck handing out water and Gatorade to workers and volunteers.
Tornadoes continued to push into central Alabama as the night wore on. In addition to the Kimberly storm, warnings were issued for Cullman and Blount counties, though no significant damage was reported.
A tornado struck southern and eastern parts of Tuscaloosa, where a member of the University of Alabama swimming team was killed when a retaining wall collapsed and fell on him. That same storm continued on into Bessemer, doing damage to an apartment complex behind UAB West hospital, but with nothing more than minor injuries.
Additional damage was reported in the Straight Mountain area of Blount County, south of Oneonta. The Weather Service has not announced survey results for that area.
