Madison County, AL and Lincoln County, TN Survey Summary
Representatives from the National Weather Service re-evaluated storm damage that was initially considered straight-lined wind damage 3 miles east-northeast of the Toney community. It was determined that this small area of damage was indeed tornado damage, which stretched from near the Macedonia Church just north of Stateline Road in Lincoln County southeast to one mile southeast of Five Points near Grimwood Road in Northwest Madison County.
This small tornado developed in a supercell thunderstorm within a line of thunderstorms which moved southeast from Lincoln County to northern Madison County. The damage path width of the tornado was between 50 and 75 yards along a 7 mile path. The maximum wind speed of the tornado was determined to be 60 miles per hour, which classifies the tornado as a EF-0 on the new Enhanced Fujita Scale.
