Walker County storm shelters going up

THACH, Alabama (WIAT) — Walker County is now home to a community storm shelter. Monday workers used a huge crane to place the first storm shelter on its concrete slab in the Thach community. It will hold more than 100 people and withstand an EF-5 tornado.

Another shelter will be put up in Nauvoo on Tuesday. These are the first of 21 shelters that will eventually be spread out through Walker County.
