Episode Narrative Large bow echo continued moving east across Alabama producing significant damage along its path.
Event Narrative A few minutes after the huge microburst occurred, a tornado touched down just southwest of County Road 56 south of Vredenburgh. Most of the structural damage occurred north of County Road 56. A very old home was pushed from its blocks and roof was lifted off. The tornado then moved northeast and damaged a church that was located near the home. Many trees were blown down in this area. Another church a few hundred yards to the northeast of the first church had part of the back of the building blown off. A convergence pattern was observed in the fallen trees from southwest of County Road 56 to northeast of the home. The tornado either dissipated or went back into the clouds near the second church. The tornado wind speed was estimated at 105 mph. No injuries were reported. People who lived only a short distance away said they never heard or observed the tornado. The tornado ended near where a huge microburst had occurred a few minutes earlier.
