GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

A viewer shared amazing video of high winds and a near miss today near Lake Guntersville.

Strong storms brought high winds to many parts of north and central Alabama Thursday.

"I saw the spray coming up off the lake and pulled over to video," Gary McGriff said.

Those winds were so strong that they ripped a metal mile per hour sign from a stand!

"I didn't realize the sign was there....Heard sign rattling and turned just as it ripped off," McGriff said.

He adds that the sign never touched him or his vehicle as it flipped overhead.
