A powerful storm -- possibly a tornado -- toppled trees, flipped cars and damaged several buildings in parts of Mobile, Ala., early Thursday from a severe strong storm system sweeping the South. "We have a lot of buildings with roof damage -- peeled off and blown off," Mobile County Emergency Management Agency Director Ronnie Adair told The Associated Press. "Some high-profile trucks like delivery trucks were turned over." The National Weather Service had issued tornado warnings for parts of several counties in the area early Thursday morning but authorities said it was too early to tell whether the damage was from a twister.
