Episode Narrative On March 2, 2012, a strong cold front moved through Central Alabama. Severe thunderstorms developed along and ahead of this front. Some of these thunderstorms were supercells. These supercells produced damage across southern and eastern sections of the area. Damaging straight line winds, tornadoes, large hail and localized flooding occurred with this event.
Event Narrative A tornado touched down in rural southeast Perry County along Oscar Price Road, just northeast of Suttle. Dozens of trees were snapped or uprooted and one hunting camp mobile home was destroyed, as the tornado moved northeastward. The tornado crossed Oakmulgee Creek and moved into Northeast Dallas County, before eventually lifting in Autauga County.
