(Mobile, AL) A powerful winter storm brought violent weather to the Southern United States on Christmas Day.

A tornado touched down just outside downtown Mobile damaging buildings and knocking out power to more than 20-thousand people.

The tornado touched down five different times, just missing the hospital district.

There are no reports of any serious injuries.

Crews say they will spend the night repairing the damage and working to get power back on.
