Preston Island-South Sauty-Powell-Sylvania, AL EF3 Tornado – April 10, 2009
On April 10, 2009, a significant tornado outbreak raked across portions of the South. This summary will focus on a tornado that skipped its way through the rolling terrain of northeast Alabama. This event had initially been documented as a single long-tracked EF3. However, due to lengthy research and satellite analysis, we proposed two separate tornado paths, with an approximate 2.2-mile damage gap near and along the Jackson/DeKalb County line.
