Destroyed Texaco station at Simcoe

On the night of Jan. 3, 1982, severe thunderstorms struck Cullman County. Areas affected included Simcoe, Walter, Phelan and Fairview, with Simcoe the hardest hit. Though no tornadoes were confirmed, winds were high enough to completely destroy a Texaco station and out building, and do damage to a fire station, bridges and chicken houses.
