Episode Narrative A powerful spring storm system, including a deepening surface low and a strong cold front, brought widespread severe weather to central Alabama. Damaging wind gusts, large hail, and 8 tornadoes were reported across the area.
Event Narrative The tornado that touched down near Liberty City in Tallapoosa County crossed into Macon County, and continued to travel southeast, staying just southwest of the Lee County line for most of its path. In Macon County, thousands of trees were either snapped off or uprooted along the damage path. A few mobile homes suffered varying degrees of damage, and one mobile home was knocked off its foundation. Several barns had their roofs partially removed, and several other structures suffered varying degrees of roof damage. Several homes and vehicles had windows broken out.
