Weather warning sirens sounded early Wednesday morning as a fast moving cold front swept through northwest Alabama bringing severe thunderstorms and tornados. Winston County was placed under a tornado warning until 6:15 a.m. Area schools started two hours later than normal. 

There was some wind damage, especially in the Addison area, but no reported injuries or deaths. Several houses in the east side of the county sustained some damage, mostly minor such as shingles blown off roofs, but no total losses except at the Sardis airport near Addison. The wind completely destroyed a hanger and flipped a small plane upside down as seen above.
