Possible twister flattens store in Mobile, Alabama | Ap

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — A possible tornado flattened a downtown store and ripped the front off a metal building across Mobile Bay early Friday, and forecasters said more storms could hit an area stretching from south Alabama to coastal Virginia.

Violent winds ripped open a Family Dollar store in a heavily populated neighborhood in Mobile and damaged an adjacent supermarket before dawn, around the time tornado warnings covered the area, news outlets reported. Another building was badly damaged to the east across the bay in Daphne, where trees were splintered.
