Episode Narrative A squall line of thunderstorms produced damaging straight-line winds and a tornado across extreme southeast Alabama during the evening of April 14.
Event Narrative A tornado touched down on County Road 38 producing minor damage to a barn. It then traveled east across Marley Mill Road and destroyed a barn, shed and greenhouse. A residential gable collapsed and several pines were snapped. A few homes on Hawridge Road in the Post Oak community suffered moderate damage. Also, a carport and shed were destroyed. A portion of County Road 50 was closed due to debris. Also, a home on Robin Parker Road was damaged when several pines snapped, with one landing on the roof. Several areas, especially along Roy Parker Road, were without power for several hours until crews could repair lines taken down by fallen trees.
