NWS Huntsville storm survey concluded that the damage in northwestern Cullman County was consistent with an EF-1 tornado with winds of 87 mph. It appeared at the tornado touched down near CR 1069 where it caused minor damage to a farm building and knocked down several small to large tree branches. Damage was noted far off on a path between CR 1069 and CR 1059. At CR 1059 several trees were either snapped or uprooted. The most intense damage was noted with two small farm structures that were destroyed and a single-wide mobile home that was knocked off its piers but remained upright. The mobile home remained attached to its straps and the straps to I-beams. However one I-beam and one strap were dislodged on the front end of the mobile home. The tornado continued between CR 1059 and CR 1082 near the CR 1083 intersection where some more large trees were uprooted. The tornado likely continued between CR 1082 and SR 157 and then lifted before reaching SR 157.
