Dora area hit by storm damage

Posted

DORA – Mayor Randy Stephens canceled the regular Dora City Council meeting on Thursday evening due to storm damage in the East Walker area that day after severe thunderstorms hit midday. 

“We got hit pretty hard in the southern part of Dora near Burnwell,” Stephens said. “We still have a lot of power outages.”

Bill Doss from the Dora office of Alabama Power said that 1,800 residents were without power when the severe thunderstorm swept through the area after lunch, but by 6:30 p.m. power had been restored to all but more than 700 people.

Much of the damage in Dora was between Sharon Boulevard and Creel Street in Burnwell. Power company workers were in the area resetting downed poles and restoring power.

There were unconfirmed reports of trees down on Four Season greenhouses that are located near New Horizon Funeral Home on Green Top hill.

There were no reports of injuries at press time.
