Episode Narrative A strong storm system brought flooding rainfall across much of northern Alabama and portions of southern middle Tennessee. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches were common, with some areas receiving 5 to 7 inches. This produced widespread and extensive flash flooding and river/creek flooding, particularly in Morgan, Madison, and Jackson counties.

A strong low level jet and some instability also set the stage for damaging thunderstorm winds. Wind gusts up to 70 mph occurred in portions of Madison and DeKalb counties.
Event Narrative Numerous trees and power lines were blown down across the county.
