Alabama car wash struck by tornado

Staff of the Shine Time Super Wash in Moulton, Alabama got the scare of their lives last Thursday when a tornado went right over their heads. It tore the roof off a nearby hotel. Luckily, no one got injured and the car wash was spared.

People in town were shocked at how loud the storm was as it approached them. “I heard some big pops, really big pops,” said Owen Anderson of Shine Time Super Wash to a local news channel. “My buddy working here with me (and I) then ran in the center of the tunnel, lifted it up and hopped in the pit where all the water goes. That was the safest place to be.”

The car wash provided a surveillance video of the storm tearing across Moulton, eventually hitting and damaging the nearby Relax Inn. Large chunks of the roof of the hotel were destroyed, and much of the debris ended up in the lot between the car wash and the motel.

A nearby hotel was damaged as well. Luckily, there were no serious injuries reported.
