Episode Narrative A potent squall line of severe thunderstorms raced eastward across the entire southeastern U.S. from the morning of April 4 through the afternoon of April 5, 2011. In a matter of just 30 hours, this squall line brought widespread damaging winds to the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys, southeast Alabama, southwest and south central Georgia, northwest Florida, and the Mid Atlantic States. This system was one of the most prolific severe weather producers to ever impact the nation with widespread straight line wind damage.
Event Narrative Numerous trees and power lines were blown down across the county. Ten structures were damaged and 2 minor injuries occurred from trees falling on homes. The monetary damage figure provided is a rough estimate.
