Episode Narrative Thunderstorms erupted during the late night and early morning hours across north Alabama in advance of a strong storm system moving from the southern Plains into the middle Mississippi Valley. The storms evolved into a small quasi-linear convective system (QLCS) as they moved into northeast Alabama. A meso-cyclone developed along this line producing a short-lived EF0 tornado in eastern Marshall County.
Event Narrative An EF-0 tornado with a 1.9 mile path length and maximum path width of 200 yards touched down just west of Martling Roadin the Martin/Asbury community. The tornado tracked east across Martling Road, Bell Orr Drive, and Claude Hill Road before weakening and lifting near Asbury Church Road. Along the track, several trees were uprooted and a few were snapped. Most of a metal roof was peeled from a a well constructed barn. A few houses near Claude Hill Road sustained minor roof damage.
