ST. CLAIR COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

St. Clair County suffered strong damage under the Wednesday morning storms.

The Shadydale Motor Home Park, east of downtown Pell City, saw several trees down on houses and mobile homes. Neighbors in the area report one woman who lives in a trailer was taken to the hospital this morning when a tree fell through her home.

Downtown Pell City saw a major power outage along with the damage. The Pell City Library was damaged and an operations center for the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department had a communications tower bought down. Motorola is on the scene to help restore the department's communications capability. There is no word if emergency calls were affected by the tower's destruction.
