NWS Meteorologists surveyed damage in extreme southern Elmore County near the Old Bingham community and determined it was the result of a brief tornado.

A very brief EF-0 tornado occurred on the northern side of Albritton Lane just northeast of Montgomery and southeast of Wetumpka. One home had a section of roofing and soffit blown off, and another home had many shingles removed. Two separate sections of fencing were knocked over as well. Another home had some roofing blown off a back porch. Observed damage, debris trajectory relative to the storm`s path, and small pieces of debris in trees indicated a circulation and lofting.

The data is PRELIMINARY and may be subject to change.
