National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed damage in northern Tuscaloosa County and eastern Jefferson County and have determined that the damage is consistent with an EF-1 tornado.
The tornado touched down approximately two-tenths of a mile north of Milldale Road. It then traveled to the northeast where it snapped and uprooted trees. The tornado crossed Griffen Ridge Road, Ridge Road and then Weller Road where trees were uprooted along each road. The tornado crossed into Jefferson County approximately three-quarters of a mile north of Weller road and continued to produce minor tree damage. It lifted just inside the Jefferson County line, approximately one mile east of Sealy Ann Mountain Road.
