SLOCOMB, Ala (WDHN)— A Slocomb home sustained heavy damage in the early morning after a possible tornado came through the town.

Katie Herrington, one of the homeowners says she got the message from the ema that they were under a tornado watch around 4:00 a.m. but she didn’t think much of it at the time.

She and her 7-year-old son were getting ready for the day per usual and she was on the phone with her husband who had left for work she expressed hearing strange sounds — she says it sounded like the wind but much different.

She looked out of her dining room window and saw wind and items flying by and after peeping outside she saw her carport had collapsed and damages to the roof.

Herrington, her son, and her dog are okay and since the house is unlivable they will be staying with a relative.
