There were several tornado reports across portions of the Midwest and Ohio Valley yesterday afternoon and evening, however at this point it appears most were related to brief touchdowns.
According to the preliminary information above (click to enlarge) there was a report of a 2.5 mile tornado track in the Heritage Creek area near Hillview, KY, however the tornado was rated only EF-1 intensity.
So far it appears that the most significant tornado activity of the day yesterday took place in extreme southeast Alabama, near Troy and Dothan. There were several reports of damage to homes, chicken houses, trees and power lines across this area.
I'll be taking a closer look at the survey data on these and other tornadoes from yesterday and will pass along any updates in the form of "Tornado Chronicles" as information becomes available...
