MOBILE, Alabama (WALA) - Wicked weather ripped through the Theodore-Dawes area Wednesday morning. One man described it as "thirty seconds of pure hell."
The BP gas station that sits on the corner of Old Pascagoula Road and Theodore-Dawes Road seemed to take the brunt of the damage. The service station awning collapsed, trucks were flipped over and the roof was ripped off.
People gathered at Jake's Place across the street in awe of what had just happened.
"I been through some weather now, but nothing like that," said Larry Bosarge. "It was loud and we had just enough time to take cover."
Employees of the Church's Chicken huddled inside the building. Most of the glass in the windows had been shattered, and the sign outside ripped was to shreds.
One bystander said he saw a tornado form and went to find shelter.
Mobile Police and Mobile-Fire Rescue were all on the scene. Mo
