The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado caused damage across two counties in north Alabama on Wednesday.

Michael Coyne of the weather service office in Huntsville said Thursday that a tornado began in eastern Limestone County and moved across the city of Madison. The twister snapped off trees and damaged roofs, but no one was hurt.

Coyne said the tornado caused a path of destruction nearly 11 miles long that was up to 75 yards wide in places. Forecasters are checking other parts of the state to determine if tornadoes or high winds were responsible for damage.
