Tropical Storm Claudette: Photos, video of storm damage on the coast
Tropical Storm Claudette is currently traversing the Alabama coast, causing flooding issues, tornado threats and more.
There has already been damage in Mobile County, where someone reported storm damage to a fishing pier on Dauphin Island. Glen Brannan of the County Emergency Management Agency said there had been no reports of injuries.
Damage was also noted at Brewton, just over 30 minutes from Atmore.
In the photos taken by Alicia Jossey, you can see various children’s toys strewn across the road, as well as mattresses and other debris.
Closer to the water, double red flags flutter in the air due to the high wind speed. The winds with Claudette have exceeded 45 mph, but the storm is not over yet.
In two Bryan Morrison videos, the visibility is almost as zero. On the Gulf Shores side, it’s hard to make out anything other than the railing.
The view is mimicked from the gulf side, where you can faintly make out the ocean and a few other buildings through the winds.
Closer to the water, Richard Scott with WVUA showed the water conditions near the Sea-n-Suds seafood restaurant on Gulf Shores.
Further down Fort Morgan Beach, Eric Blinn shows similar, but not as choppy waters.
Claudette is expected to weaken to a tropical depression by night.
