The severe weather may be gone, but it did leave a lasting impression on at least one family in Autauga County. Instead of preparing for the Christmas holiday, they're trying to figure out what's next for their family and their home.
"The storm came really blowing over, it just seemed like the wind got really bad at times," said Shawna Littleton, whose home was damaged. "It didn't really seem to do much."
But the damage off County Road 57 in Autauga County is a reminder that any storm can be big when it's your home that's damaged. Shawna Littleton and her husband weren't home at the time, but friends told them about the damage. Winds knocked the shingles off of the Littletons' home. It also damaged the roof.
"Way too close to Christmas, this is messing up everything that we had planned," Littleton said. "We're having to stay with my mom until we can figure out what's going to be done."
Fire crews also responded to other reports of damage in the area.
"We have some extra tarps and things at the station, and we stopped to grab some of those," said Lowell Strock, Chief of the White City Fire Department. "Had some other departments meet me here, and we tried to cover them up as soon as we could."
Neighbors came out to help too, including those who saw damage of their own this year from the April tornadoes. The Littletons said they are grateful for the help.
