Tornado update

3rd May 2011

It turns out that there were actually two tornadoes that missed our house – an EF1 to the southeast of us and an EF2 just to the north of us (the one that went through Mountain Brook and Cahaba Heights that I posted pictures from earlier). Here is the official preliminary report from the weather service:

Based on the weather report and my own observations on my bike commute route (shown in red) – I’ve updated my damage map below:
