Episode Narrative A quasi-linear convective system (QLCS) produced three tornadoes in northeast Alabama, including one EF-2 which tracked through portions of Jackson and DeKalb Counties. Severe weather began as early as late evening on the 24th and lasted through the pre-dawn hours on the 25th. Two people were also injured by lightning in Colbert County.
Event Narrative An EF-0 tornado with peak winds up to 85 mph approached the town of Arab and touched down just east of Highway 231 at Haynes Road. The tornado snapped or uprooted several trees along and produced some minor roof and siding damage at a home at the intersection of Haynes Road and Putter Circle. Additional trees were snapped or uprooted on the golf course across the street from the home. The tornado continued a short track east-northeast causing significant damage to a farm outbuilding on Huckleberry Lane.
