Episode Narrative Several lines of strong to severe thunderstorms formed ahead of a cold front and strong low pressure system over southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, and moved into portions of southeast Alabama during the afternoon of the 8th.
Event Narrative A fast-moving supercell spawned a tornado just north of U.S. Highway 84 near the intersection of State Road 123, where it destroyed a barn. It then moved to the northeast, and damaged a few vehicles at an auto dealership and uprooted some trees near the Dale-Houston county line. It crossed from western Houston County into southeastern Dale County, and remained on the ground for nearly a mile before lifting. The tornado was rated an EF-0.
