WINSTON COUNTY - Throughout the years, weather records are continuously being broken as unusual temperatures, rainfall amounts and other weather phenomena occur. Most broken records are minor, usually within one or two degrees of a record high or record low. What is major, however, is when the big ones come through, and this winter in Winston County over the last couple months has received status as the wettest ever recorded.
HALEYVILLE - A portion of Airport Road in the area of Brookhaven 1 subdivision is being barricaded by the Haleyville Street Department due to flooding conditions from heavy rain during severe storms Sunday night. Motorists are being advised to avoid this area.
