Pickens County, Alabama – The town of McMullen in Pickens County, Alabama, was struck this Tuesday evening by an EF2 tornado, as informed by the National Weather Service. The tornado destroyed lots of buildings, including 13 houses.
Dozens of homes were reported to be completely destroyed and, at least, one of the affected mobile houses, was cracked in half after it was apparently picked up, carried and dropped by high winds.
Jim Stefkovich, a National Weather Service meteorologist who is in charge of the situation, informed that survey crews are canvassing other areas of west Alabama where apparently other tornadoes also struck and will give updates on damage assessments Wednesday afternoon. He also said that the storm survey crews are also evaluating damage in Fayette and Lamar counties.
