Athens got off easy: Injuries and damage seems to be minimal. The CNN report said that two homes in Athens "suffered minor damage as the storm rolled through," citing a spokeswoman for Limestone County's emergency management agency. Power lines and trees are down.
"One person was slightly injured running for shelter near the Walmart on U.S. 72 in Athens," reports AL.com. "The storm lasted from 2:04 p.m. until 3 p.m." The severe weather caused the Limestone County Sheriff's Rodeo to be cancelled for tonight. But fear not: The rodeo will resume on Saturday.
