The small, aluminum boat was thrown into the tree with force strong enough to crimp it so that it remained suspended in the air.

Alabama remains under a significant threat of severe weather through Thursday morning.

Damage reports are still coming in.

Multiple tornadoes have already been confirmed but no injuries or fatalities have been reported.
