The tornado touched down just west of AL Highway 71, about 1 mile
northeast of Higdon, AL where a tree was snapped off at the top
along with other very large branches broken off on the property.
It then tracked east and on County Road 292 it uprooted a large
tree that fell on a truck and a house. Another small uprooted tree
was noted in the area as well. The tornado continued east and as
it crossed County Road 269 a small clearing in the trees was noted
along with a large tree split at the base. A house on County Road
169 had the most damage with three very healthy trees cleaning
snapped off at the exact same height. Other trees on the property
were snapped near the base as well as multiple very large limbs
down. The snapped trees is what warranted the 90 MPH designation.
This is where the tornado was at the widest with other snapped
trees noted along County Road 169. The last of the damage was
found on County Road 817 with a metal roof from a house peeled off
and thrown behind the house. A snapped tree was seen behind the
house as well.
