Teams From NWS Birmingham Will Be Out Today Surveying Tornado Damage

Two teams will be heading out today from NWS Birmingham to survey damage across multiple counties. The first team will survey damage in Sumter, Marengo, Greene, Hale, and Perry counties. The second team will survey damage in Bibb, Chilton, and Shelby counties.

Damage in most of these counties was associated with one supercell that moved into southern Sumter County from Mississippi and possibly dropped a few tornadoes on its path until it finally weakened in Shelby County.

NWS Birmingham will issue additional Public Information Statements periodically through the day as survey teams report back with their findings.

If you witnessed or are aware of any storm damage due to high winds or tornadoes, please contact your local emergency management office. You can also report severe weather by using #bmxwx on Twitter.
