Suspected Tornado Hits North Alabama

LACEY'S SPRINGS, Ala. (AP) - A suspected tornado has damaged a north Alabama trailer park and displaced several families but apparently caused no injuries.

Morgan County Emergency Management Agency assistant Rita Weeks said the mobile home park at Lacey's Springs was struck by violent winds Thursday evening, damaging 20 to 30 trailers. Morgan County Sheriff's chief deputy Michael Corley said about 150 people live in the small mobile community and it was a blessing no one was hurt.

Trees and power lines were down and there were reports of scattered damage in several parts of west and north Alabama. The National Weather Service said radar indicated several possible funnel clouds Thursday as the storm front moved across much of the state.
