According to The Weather Channel, it is possible that a tornado touched down in the area and that more severe weather could be on the way.

The suspected twister is part of a round of dangerous severe thunderstorms expected to impact the South.

A potent jet stream disturbance will sweep through the South into Monday while intercepting moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in the formation of widespread severe storms, according to weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. Those storms could be accompanied by tornadoes, damaging straight-line winds and large hail.
