Marion County was lucky enough to suffer only minimal damage during Hurricane Ida’s passing through the State of Alabama, which has greatly affected other areas in the U.S. this past week.
Marion County Emergency Management Agency Director Eric Terrell reached out to the Journal Record on Friday, Aug. 27, stating that the main concerns during the storm would be winds up to 40 miles-per-hour and possible tornados forming in the area.
Thankfully, no tornados were spotted in the county during the storm and, according to Terrell, only minimal damage occurred to trees and power lines.
