From NWS Birmingham: A tornado formed along State Route 25 about two miles southwest of the Moores Valley Community in extreme southern Marengo County. The tornado moved northeast, causing significant tree damage at Friendship Baptist Church, along County Road 56, County Road 55, and Moores Valley Road. The damage path quickly grew to a width of 1000 yards as it crossed into Wilcox County. Maximum winds were estimated at 100 mph for the Marengo County portion of this track.
From NWS Mobile/Pensacola: The tornado entered Wilcox County from Marengo County just southwest of County Road 32 and lifted near County Road 30. The most significant damage occurred along County Road 32 where numerous pine trees were snapped. A mobile home was heavily damaged by a large pine tree. Additional trees were either uprooted or snapped along the path with the tornado weakening as it approached County Road 30 just east of Lamison. Many thanks to NWS Birmingham with their assistance with this survey.
The same storm has also resulted in numerous trees being downed across Wilcox County from straight line winds.
