Many more people have been reported injured as a result of the storm in Calhoun County, Alabama. Sheriff Matthew Wade told CNN search and rescue efforts are underway in Ohatchee, but warned “we’re worrying about the second storm that’s coming through, possibly on the same track“. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service office in Birmingham, Alabama, has issued a “tornado emergency” for areas just south and east of the city. They said on Twitter: “Tornado safety plans, everyone. Get low, get in the middle of the building. DON’T WAIT TO THE LAST MINUTE. TAKE COVER NOW!”
