Episode Narrative A strong cold front and very intense upper level storm system moving across the Gulf Coast States brought numerous severe thunderstorms and several tornadoes to Central Alabama.
Event Narrative A tornado that would eventually cross 3 county lines first touched down in southeastern Fayette County, about a mile southeast of the Newtonville Community. From there the tornado moved on a northeast path, for about 6.5 miles, before crossing briefly into Tuscaloosa County. In this segment of its path, damage was generally light until the tornado approached the Tuscaloosa County Line, when several mobile homes were hit and badly damaged. The tornado crossed into Tuscaloosa County just south of Fayette CR-68.
