Episode Narrative Severe thunderstorms produced numerous reports of damaging wind and one tornado across southeast Alabama.
Event Narrative The parent supercell thunderstorm, which spawned the EF-1 tornado, tracked across the northwest corner of Coffee County from southeast Crenshaw County. The tornado lifted the roofs off two barns, and partially removed the roof off a single family home before entering Pike County (see Storm Data for Alabama, Central, for more information).
