National Weather Service confirms several EF1 tornadoes in southwest, southeast Alabama


MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Forecasters say several tornadoes were recorded during a period of severe weather in southwest and southeast Alabama.

Birmingham-based National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Davis says an EF1 tornado was recorded in northern Pike County early Monday morning.

Davis says details on when exactly the twister touched down and how long it lasted weren't immediately available. Davis says survey crews in Birmingham are still evaluating storm damage in Russell and Pike counties to determine whether tornadoes touched down there as well.

Mobile-based senior forecaster Don Shepherd says three different tornadoes touched down in Washington and Clarke counties in southwest Alabama. Shepherd says the worst of the damage was caused by an EF1 tornado.

Shepherd says two tornadoes also touched down in Butler and Crenshaw Counties.
