The tornado first touched down at approximately 702 pm on Fox Valley Road in Maylene, where it tossed trampolines and snapped at few small trees. The tornado traveled northeast crossing Shelby County Road 17 just south of the intersection of CR 17 and 1st Ave W. It then struck Fox Valley Apartments and moved into the Stoney Meadow Subdivision where several homes received minor to substantial roof damage. The most significant damage occurred on Rock View Trail where siding was stripped off of one home and another home received significant roof damage and had the garage door blown out. Two mature cedar trees were also snapped at this location. The tornado weakened rapidly and continued to produce minor damage as it crossed through the Navajo Trail Subdivision. The last bits of minor roof and fence damage were in the Greenfield Subdivision off of Industrial Park Drive in Alabaster.
