A tornado began on the eastern banks of Lake Tuscaloosa, inside of the Northriver Yacht Club Community. Trees where snapped and uprooted, with some residences sustaining relatively minor roofing damage, aside from anything more significant resulting from tree fall. The tornado moved northeastward and crossed the Black Warrior River, uprooting and snapping hundreds of trees along its path. The tornado ended just before the Whiteoak Creek branch of the Black Warrior River, just prior to the Jefferson County line. We’d like to thank the Tuscaloosa Police department for taking us into the air to survey this damage path.
