Strong storms rolled through central Alabama on Thursday night and Friday morning leaving damage in their wake.

National Weather Service meteorologist Gerald Satterwhite says several trailer homes were damaged in Montgomery County overnight.

Satterwhite said the storm did have some rotation in but it's hard to tell if the damage was caused by a tornado or by straight-line winds.

WSFA-TV ( ) reports that no injuries other than minor scrapes were reported. Crews were on the scene cutting through trees that fell across roads.

6:40 a.m.

Authorities say a suspected tornado hit Calhoun County in southwest Georgia early Thursday, causing property damage and injuring several people.

National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Fournier says two people were seriously injured when a trailer home was destroyed in Dickey. They had to be taken to a hospital but were conscious.

He said several other people received less serious injuries when trailer homes were overturned in Edison.

A number of trees and power lines were also down in the area after the storm swept through.

Fournier says it's almost certain that the damage was caused by a tornado. The weather service hopes to send a storm team to the area later Thursday to investigate.

Strong thunder storms that swept through the metro Atlanta area also downed some trees.
