Survey Summary:
The tornado started just north of the Fairhope Municipal Pier
along Fairhope Park Road, where multiple oak and pine trees were
snapped. The tornado moved to the east-northeast, paralleling Oak
Ave and snapping large limbs from the tops of several trees. As it
crossed N Summit St, a light pole was snapped, and large oak tree
was snapped, falling on a home. The tornado appears to have
lifted near the intersection of Oak Ave and N Church St. Outside
of the narrow and concentrated path associated with the tornado,
many large tree limbs were broken and this damage was determined
to be from straight-line winds. Additionally, this tornado is
believed to have started as a waterspout in Mobile Bay near the
Fairhope Pier.

Special thanks to Baldwin County EMA for their assistance with
the survey.
