Tornado Touches Down in AL

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a
tornado that hit Huntsville this week measured EF-2 on the Fujita
scale.

Storms that spawned the tornado also peppered Madison County
with heavy rainfall and small hail.

The tornado touched down at 5:22 p.m. Thursday in the north
Alabama city, snapping tree and utility poles and leaving thousands
without power. Multiple homes also sustained roof damage, both from
falling trees and high winds.

The weather service says the same storm system also generated an
EF-1 tornado just east of Sewannee, Tenn., near the airport, around
5 p.m. Thursday. Large hail was also reported across Lincoln and
Franklin counties in Tennessee.
