DALLAS COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — “That’s a boat y’all.”
The Central Alabama Electric Cooperative workers who took this picture in Dallas County needn’t say more. As utility crews worked to assess damage in the Central Alabama following severe storms Wednesday afternoon, they happened upon this incredible sight.
“Please take these storms seriously throughout the afternoon and night,” the cooperative posted on its Facebook page. “Have a way to receive weather alerts and be prepared.”
