Episode Narrative An atmospheric gravity wave brought gusty winds to a large part of Central Alabama during the afternoon and early evening hours on December 20, 2007. The winds associated with the gravity wave moved into Western Alabama just after noon, and moved eastward across the state through around 7 pm. Several counties reported tree and power line damage due to the gusty winds, and as a result there were numerous power outages. Sustained winds over 30 mph, and gusts up to 50 mph, were common across the area.
Event Narrative Several trees and power lines were blown down across the county, resulting in several power outages.
