DEMOPOLIS, AL (WSFA) -

The National Weather Service survey team is rating a tornado that touched down in Marengo County near Demopolis on Christmas as an EF-1 with a peak wind of 100 mph.

There were no injuries or fatalities reported from the storm, but investigators say 2 mobile homes were destroyed while several others sustained damage. A dozen homes suffered roof damage, while a church reported partial roof damage.

The tornado moved northeastward across U.S. Highway 43 where it caused damage near Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Old Springhill Road, Reed Drive and Sunset Road.
