A tornado tore through Alabama overnight on Monday destroying homes, injuring at least 20 and killing one. The storm hit the central city of Fultondale, leaving a trail of damaged roofs, collapsed walls, downed power lines, flipped vehicles and fallen trees.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Birmingham confirmed that a “large and extremely dangerous tornado” had touched down late Monday.

Some of the most significant damage happened at the Hampton Inn hotel, where a corner of the building was torn away.

“The people of Fultondale took a hard hit last night — I’m grieved over the loss of life, injuries, homes & damaged businesses,” Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey tweeted early Tuesday. “I offer my prayers & deepest sympathies & pledge the full support & resources our state has to offer. I am with you, Fultondale!”
