Episode Narrative A squall line affected the region on the 15th. Isolated supercell thunderstorms developed ahead of the line across southeast Alabama during the afternoon and produced several tornadoes.
Event Narrative A tornado touched down just northeast of Elba. Most of the damage occurred along County Roads 235 and 279 and State Highway 125. Several mobile homes and sheds were destroyed. Two persons were injured when their doublewide mobile home was tossed into trees. Among the structures damaged were a collection tank and four roll-off containers at a county landfill, a home which lost its front porch and roof, and several trailers. There were numerous trees and utility poles uprooted.
