Marengo Co. Mother and Two Adult Daughters Hurt in Storms
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
Three people are in the hospital with serious injuries — and dozens of homes were damaged by storms Monday night in Marengo County.
EMA officials say the storms damaged dozens of homes — knocked out power — and up-rooted and snapped trees.
Two mobile homes in the Salt Well community were completely destroyed the storms.
One trailer was vacant — but a mother and her two daughters were inside the other one — when the storm hit.
“They’re alive!” said Delia Peoples, another relative of the injured storm victims.
“They are alive, and that meant everything — because you can get things, you can rebuild and get things but you can’t get that life back.”
EMA officials say a preliminary assessment of the damage — suggests it may have was caused by a possible EF-2 tornado.
Weather experts say an EF-2 tornado can cause considerable damage to property — with winds that range from 111 — to 135 miles per hour.
