Our weather watcher, Mike Wilhelm, from Vinemont reported it was a ferocious storm. 0.92 inches of rain at his location. Incredible lightning display. Dime sized hail of I-65 and AL-157. SOme local flooding and small tree down at Vinemont School.

Storms have weakened over the county. A severe thunderstorm warning does remain in effect for northeastern Cullman until 6 p.m.

    Thanks Mike. My boys and I are all ok…but if we were in the park across the street we may have been struck by lightning like that tree! The NWS says, “When thunder roars, stay indoors!” Those are definitely words to live by on days like this!
