A tornado touched down in the Holly Pond community near the center of town. The tornado caused minimal tree and roof damage as it quickly moved through the city. Minor roof damage was caused  to the old WaterBrook restaurant, also blowing off siding at this location, and wrapping it around a cell phone tower northeast of the restaurant.  From there, the tornado skipped northeast, causing minimal roof damage to the southwest corner of Holly Pond High School, where less than 20% of the roof was damaged, and portions of the awning were also damaged.  As a result of the survey teams findings, EF0 tornado damage was determined at this location in Holly Pond, with damage associated with 80MPH winds. No additional damage was found northeast of this location.

Special thanks to Cullman County EMA for their assistance on the storm survey this afternoon.
