ALABASTER, AL (WBRC) - Strong storms spawned a few tornadoes on Thursday night.

In Shelby County, a tornado caused damage to some homes and trees in the Stoney Meadows subdivision near County Road 44 in Alabaster.  A meteorologist with the National Weather Service took a picture of the tornado as it crossed through the area shortly around 7 p.m.
     
The storm also caused damage in the Shelby County town of Maylene near County Road 17 in the area of Fox Valley.

There were no reports of injuries from either location.

The National Weather Service also received reports of possible tornado damage along Little John Road in Chilton County near Clanton.

The National Weather Service said survey teams would be out Friday examining the damage to determine if it was caused by a tornado.

In Morgan County, the same line of severe storms flipped a mobile home. Luckily, no one was home at the time.
     
Strong winds also snapped several trees and spurred several tornado warnings in the area.
