NWS Meteorologists surveyed damage in southeaster Pike County just northeast of Brundidge and determined it was the result of a brief tornado.

The tornado touched down in an open field just west of CR81 and north of Alabama Highway 10. The first indicated damages were the tin roof being removed from an older manufactured home and an uprooted hardwood. The tornado moved east-southeastward and struck a much newer manufactured home which was slightly shifted off its supports, and sustained skirting damage and a broken picture window. There was also light splatter on all four sides of the home. The tornado continued ESE, producing minor small limb damage as it crossed Alabama Highway 10. The tornado then uprooted 5 healthy pecan trees, with a slightly convergent pattern. Another hardwood was uprooted just off the shoulder north of Alabama Highway 10, also indicative of convergence. The tornado dissipated rapidly past this point and produced no further damage.

Foulk Creek EF-0 Tornado (Barbour County)
  November 27, 2019

 

Event Summary

EF-0
Estimated Maximum Wind:
60 mph
Injuries/Fatalities:
None
Damage Path Length:
1.15 miles
Maximum Path Width:
40 yards
Approximate Start Point/Time:
2 NW Clio
31.7240/-85.6294
at 919 am
Approximate End Point/Time:
1 N Clio
31.7231/-85.6099
at 921 am

 

NWS Meteorologists surveyed damage in southwest Barbour County near Clio and determined it was the result of a weak tornado.

Doppler RADAR showed a tornado debris signature (TDS) associated with an area of rotation as the cell moved eastward into far southwestern Barbour County. Minor single-point damage was noted on Alabama Highway 10 as well as on Highway 51, west and north of Clio, respectively. Between these 2 points, a TDS was noted on radar in an area that was inaccessible. Given RADAR evidence plus the tornadic nature of the storm with tracks 1 and 3, a brief EF-0 track was assigned to an area on the northwest side of Clio. Tornado intensity was estimated using velocity strength and TDS height.
