Episode Narrative A powerful spring storm system and associated cold front brought numerous thunderstorms to central Alabama. Many of the storms produced large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes.
Event Narrative The tornado touched down in a wooded ravine, between Nichols Lane and CR-7. It then traveled east-northeast for just over a mile, and lifted near the intersection of Coles Truck Stop Road and AL-5. Along the path, approximately 100 hardwood trees were snapped, and near the end of the path, several hardwoods were uprooted. A home sustained minor damage to shingles and siding. The occupant of the home took refuge in a closet, and was unharmed, after her brother called to inform her of the tornado warning.
