National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed the damage in southern Bibb County and have determined that the damage was due to an EF-1 tornado. The tornado touched down near the intersection of Abercrombie Road (County Road 51) and Harrisburg Road in the Talladega National Forest of southern Bibb County. The only structural damage occurred at the beginning of the path where a home had siding torn off. Otherwise...the damage was confined to trees.
The damage was rather weak at the beginning of the path but the tornado strengthened as it moved up County Road 51. The greatest tree damage occurred about 3 miles up the path. Numerous trees were either snapped off or were uprooted. The tornado continued northeast and crossed Highway 219 and Highway 82.
The tornado weakened as it continued northeast across Antioch Road (County Road 20) and Highway 139. The tornado eventually lifted immediately west of the Chilton County Line on County Road 2.
