Episode Narrative Scattered low-topped thunderstorms, some of which were supercells, produced two tornadoes and scattered wind damage during the afternoon and early evening hours. Isolated flash flooding was also reported. The second tornado was produced from a rogue supercell that was tied closely with an upper level disturbance tracking rapidly northeast through northern Alabama.
Event Narrative A tornado with a path length 1/4 of a mile, peak wind of 100 mph, and a maximum path width of 50 yards touched down just east of Morgan City. The most extensive damage occurred along Griffin Acres Road, where a roof was uplifted from a shed. This caused the shed to partially collapse. Multiple trees were also uprooted and snapped. A large tree was blown down onto a trailer just before it lifted near Green Briar Cove Road.
