WHITE CITY, Ala.– White City's voting precinct has been moved to the Johnson's Crossing Volunteer Fire Department, the Cullman County Commission decided during an emergency meeting Friday morning. The move is due to significant damage to the White City Community Center, which had served as the voting precinct, in Thursday evening's storms and comes just days ahead of the March 19 school tax referendum.
The roof was torn off the White City Community Center and a home next door suffered substantial damage. Multiple trees were downed. The Cullman County Sheriff's Office also reported downed power lines. Cullman Emergency Management Agency Director Phyllis Little reported a mobile home on County Road 609 damaged by a tree and downed trees on County Road 766 near Welti. No injuries have been reported.
The National Weather Service in Huntsville will determine if the damage in White City was due to a tornado. As for the future of the community center, that is unclear. The structure is being evaluated, according to Cullman County Emergency Management Agency Director Phyllis Little.
The Johnson's Crossing Volunteer Fire Department is located at 1544 County Road 617, Hanceville, Alabama 65077.
