Bulls arena appears to avoid major storm damage

MACON, Ga. – The Pelham Civic Complex, home to the SPHL’s Birmingham Bulls, appears to not have sustained major damage from Thursday afternoon’s storms that ripped through the mid south and resulted in tornado activity.

According to team Vice President of Communications David Koonce, the Bulls had departed for Thursday’s game at Knoxville before the storm’s arrival.

Arena staff also evacuated safely.

“We had a close call, but everyone is safe. Our players and coaching staff were already on the road north to Knoxville before the storm reached the Birmingham area,” Koonce told The Sin Bin via e-mail. “The PCC was evacuated with plenty of time for everyone in the building to leave the area and find a safe place.”

Koonce, who also praised the City of Pelham’s emergency response system, said that while the surrounding area sustained damage, the rink did not suffer any known major damage.

“Everyone in our organization has the residents of Pelham, Helena and all the greater Birmingham area in our thoughts and prayers,” Koonce added.
