MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The National Weather Service has confirmed multiple tornadoes on Sunday across central and south Alabama.

Each tornado was either an EF-0 or EF-1.

Here's the latest list, as of Tuesday morning, of what has been confirmed by the NWS:

EF-0 (Max winds to 80 mph) in southern Montgomery County
EF-1 (Max winds to 95 mph) in rural western Crenshaw County
EF-1 (Max winds to 100 mph) in rural northeast Crenshaw County
EF-0 (Max winds to 75 mph) near Fort Rucker in Dale County
EF-0 (Max winds to 80 mph) near Foley in Baldwin County
EF-0 (Max winds to 80 mph) near Elberta in Baldwin County

The Montgomery Emergency Management Agency says it is working to correct issues with one of its outdoor weather sirens in south Montgomery and cautions residents they may hear the siren being tested Tuesday.

As a reminder, you should never depend solely on an outdoor weather siren to alert you. Often, you will not be able to hear it if you're inside. Make sure you have several ways of being alerted, including the WSFA 12 Weather app or a weather radio.
