NWS Confirms Touchdowns on Thursday
(2008-05-09)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Officials with the National Weather Service have confirmed tornado touchdowns in north and west Alabama.

A survey team found evidence of an EF2 tornado from Leighton in Colbert County to Rogersville in Lauderdale County. A surveillance camera at an equipment company caught footage of that tornado tossing at least two cars nearly 40 feet.

A team also investigated damage in Fayette, Walker and Winston counties and found that an EF1 tornado touched down near the Bazemore community in Fayette County. That tornado caused more damage in the Kansas community in Walker County.

The twisters were part of a storm system that raked the northern part of the state Thursday.
