Episode Narrative An advancing cold front moving through the state caused widespread wind damage and a few tornadoes across Central Alabama, especially in the eastern half of the state.
Event Narrative Within a broad swath of wind damage, a tornado path was also found in Saint Clair County. The tornado touched down near Easonville Road, about a mile west of US-231. The tornado then traveled east, crossing US-231, before lifting at AL-34 near the Cropwell Community. In the Hunting Ridge subdivision, a dozen homes sustained roof or structural damage, five outbuildings sustained structural damage, and several power lines were downed. On Holiday Estates Drive, six homes sustained roof or structural damage, and additional power lines were downed. At the Pell City sports complex, several signs, fences, and dugouts were damaged. Across this entire path several hundred trees were uprooted or snapped.
