Episode Narrative An upper level shortwave moving east across the Gulf coast states encountered an unstable airmass with fairly high delta thetae values favorable for downbursts. Several areas of tree and power line damage occurred. Low level wind shear was also maximized in southeast Alabama, contributing to a rare summer EF1 tornado in Geneva county spawned from a supercell thunderstorm.
Event Narrative This is a continuation of the Geneva county tornado. This tornado was seen near the Geneva/Coffee county line by a retired police officer before dissipating. No damage was reported in Coffee county.
