4.2 NW Hatton - 4.3 NNE Hatton
The tornado looks to have touched down on CR-140 and along a forested area just west of where CR-140 and AL Highway 157 intersect. Just east of 157, a house had significant damage. The tin roof was peeled away from its wooden supports, some of which were broken. Large trees were snapped and uprooted and were laying in multiple directions. A well constructed sturdy barn with metal supports was completely mangled and collapsed. Debris from the barn and the house was tossed into the woods behind it and wrapped around trees. The tornado then tracked east, with a swath of damage bordering and along CR-140. The houses all along this road had shingle damage, as well as a few holes through the wood of the roof. Another house had an east facing door blown in with a back porch pulled away from another. One house in particular, along with roof damage, had a roof completely removed from a large car port with its supports pulled from the concrete. A trailer was also picked up and placed on top of a tractor. This house also had a row of trees completely snapped near the center of the tree. All along the road there were very large trees uprooted and trunks snapped. The tornado moved east through forested areas before impacting more houses along CR-449. One house had a window blown out and an interior door was twisted along with a small outbuilding collapsed.

1 ENE Campbell - 5 SE Ashby
The National Weather Service surveyed damage in far western Chilton County and determined the damage was caused by a tornado. The tornado touched down in a wooded area just west of the intersection of County Road 36 and Alabama Highway 191, where it snapped several branches off of trees. From there, the tornado moved north-northwestward, and continued to cause damage to trees as it crossed County Road 204 and across a yard at the end of County Road 207. The tornado gained some strength as it crossed County Road 42, where it snapped and uprooted numerous trees, including one that fell onto a residence. From there the tornado weakened once again, causing damage to tree limbs and smaller branches as it crossed County Road 124 and County Road 120. It ultimately lifted near the intersection of County Road 119 and County Road 107, with just a few small branches down at that location. The tornado damage path was 6.0 miles long and was 150 yards wide at its widest point. This tornado was spawned from Hurricane Nate.

3 ENE Mertz - 2 WSW Eoline
The tornado spun up along Road 700 north of Highway 25 in the Oakmulgee District of the Talladega National Forest, just west of Lake Ponderosa, where a couple tree branches were broken. It continued northeast through forested land and strengthened as it approached County Highway 16. There an anchored barn and shed both collapsed, and an unanchored mobile home was rolled over, while numerous softwood trees were snapped. After crossing County 16 it damaged the tin roof of an abandoned structure, and continued to snap numerous trees as it began to parallel County 16 and cross Highway 1. The roof was damaged on a small shed along Sugar Hill Lane with continued tree damage. The tornado dissipated after crossing Ward School Road, prior to reaching Highway 82 and Eoline. The tornado was captured in a couple videos. The parent supercell went on to exhibit a couple additional tight velocity couplets and a lowering in correlation coefficient as it continued through Bibb County near West Blocton and Woodstock. However, survey teams could not find any additional damage on any accessible roads, and no additional damage was reported. The tornado was produced by the remnants of Hurricane Harvey.

A strong, bowing line of storms moved quickly through Cullman County the afternoon of April 30. Within the bowing segment, rotation was detected on radar which tracked through the north central portions of the county. The damage team found several EF-0 damage indicators in the Vinemont area in the form of uprooted softwood trees and large limb damage. General storm motion from the severe line was northeast. Debris was observed either in a convergent pattern or oriented in sporatic directions. The tornado continued north of CR 1422 and CR 1518 toward the Cullman/Morgan Co. line, south of Eva, AL. In this area, the most concentrated area of damage was observed near CR 1526. Amongst several trees uprooted, a metal roof was blown off a large garage/barn and pushed into a single family residence. Additionally, minor roof shingle damage was reported further north on CR 1526. The tornado likely dissipated nearly CR 1527, south of the Morgan County line.

2.5 NW Jones Chapel - 1.6 SE Jones Valley
NWS Huntsville and Cullman County EMA survey team determined a 200 yard swath of damage adjacent to widespread straightline wind damage was attributed to an EF-1 tornado. Max winds were estimated at 100 MPH. The tornado appeared to develop near the intersection of CR 1043 and CR 1047 where roof damage to a farm house was noted. The tornado continue near CR 1043 and uprooted several trees before heavily damaging a farm structure west of the CR 1043 and CR 1082 intersection. Sporatic tree limb damage was noted between CR 1082 and CR 1039 north of Jones Chapel. South of Jones Chapel, several chicken houses were severely damaged by the tornado before dissipating near the CR 991/992. Convergent damage from the uprooted trees north of Jones Chapel coincided with a tightening rotation velocity gradient from KHTX which led to the conclusion that a tornado touched town.

5.5 N Red Bay - 3.5 NNW Burntout
The tornado appeared to develop just west of the Alabama/Mississippi state line. Heavy tree damage was noted at the start point in Alabama which was consistent with a tornado debris signature and velocity couplet on KGWX radar, which was about 5.5 miles north of Red Bay, AL. The debris signature tracked east over heavily forested area that was not accessible by vehicle. Additional heavy tree damage was located near the end point which was consistent with the last debris signature seen on KGWX radar. Satellite data has been requested and will be used to analyze the remainder of this track but confidence is high enough in the velocity signature, the tornado debris signature and the damage to declare an EF-0 tornado. The majority of the tree damage consisted of small to medium sized trees snapped, branches twisted with one or two trees uprooted.

2 ENE Coosa Island - 5 SW Pell City
National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed damage in Southern St. Clair County near Treasure Island and determined that the damage was consistent with an EF-1 tornado. A persistent mesocyclone spun up a brief weak tornado within a line of thunderstorms as it passed through St Clair County. The tornado touched down on Logan Martin Lake just south of the eastern shore of Treasure Island. The tornado tracked northward parallel to and just off the shores of the island, with the initial damage pointing largely offshore. Four boathouses were destroyed and a few trees were snapped or uprooted here, but the path of the tornado was far enough offshore so as not to cause any structural damage to the homes another 50 to 100 feet further inland. As the tornado continued northward across a large cove, it remained completely over water. As it approached the northeastern tip of the island, which jutted out into the lake, the tornado came ashore again and peeled metal roofing off a well-built boathouse. The tornado reached maximum strength here, with 10 large hardwood trees uprooted in a concentrated area in a convergent pattern. The tornado passed offshore again and dissipated before reaching the opposite point on the lake. The tornado was .7 miles long and was 175 yards wide at its widest point. The tornado was rated an EF-1 with maximum winds around 90 mph. Thanks to the St. Clair County EMA for their assistance with this survey.
