NWS Meteorologists surveyed damage in Elmore County southwest of Eclectic and determined it was the result of a tornado.

An isolated, low-topped supercell produced a weak, brief tornado along Pleasant Hill Road about 8.9 miles northeast of Wetumpka, or 3.4 miles southwest of Eclectic. About a dozen large trees were uprooted sporadically along the path in a convergent pattern near the center of the path, with weaker tree limb damage on the outskirts of the path. A tree fell on a barn. One manufactured home had a roof partially removed as well as minor damage to a deck and skirting.

Special thanks go to Elmore County EMA for their assistance with the damage survey.

The data is PRELIMINARY and may be subject to change.
