Episode Narrative Scattered thunderstorms developed across the area in association with a moist and unstable air mass. One storm in particular moved north into Houston county and collapsed. This collapsing thunderstorm produced severe downburst winds in a small area of southern Houston county that caused numerous trees to blow down across roads as well as damage to numerous utility sheds and a few barns.
Event Narrative A single tree blew down and blocked one lane of the road near 2800 Horace Shepard Dr. No other damage was reported in the vicinity, and the Dothan airport located about 2.5 miles north of the location reported a peak wind gust near 30 knots. Radar showed an outflow boundary moving through the area with the parent thunderstorm weakening about 15 miles southeast of the location. Monetary damage was estimated.
