NWS Huntsville and Morgan County EMA storm survey determined damage near Eva, or near the Cullman County and Morgan County line, was consistent with a strong EF-0 tornado with winds of 84 mph. The tornado itself appeared to have a very small vortex in the magnitude of approximately 30 to 50 yards. The tornado appeared to touch down on the Cullman county side where it caused tree damage in the form of large branches being knocked down. The maximum sustained damage was noted on the Morgan county side, on Pentecost Rd. where the tornado destroyed a small storage structure built from cinder blocks. This small structure appeared to be unanchored and not reinforced which led to the collapse of the walls and the roof. Video evidence from this location also saw vehicles being lifted up and sat down and a boat being lifted up and pushed about 3 ft from its location. The tornado likely lifted in a field north of Pentecost Rd.
