...STORM SURVEY PLAN OF THE DAY FOR MONDAY APRIL 23...

.OVERVIEW...

A low pressure system moved northeastward across Central Alabama. A
warm front moved northward in response to this system and ushered in
unstable air near the warm front. Rotating storms developed and may
have produced tornadoes. Several tornado videos were received from
storms to our south and some of these storms made it into Central
Alabama.

SURVEY SUMMARY:

Several rotating storms affected southern Barbour County where some
minor damage was reported. Radar appeared to indicate tornado damage
in a few locations. One storm also moved into southern Montgomery
County where trees were reported down. Additional damage was reported
south in Crenshaw County.

At this time, storm surveys are being planned for the following
counties:

Team One: Primary Targets: Southern Barbour County

Team Two: Primary Targets: Southern Montgomery County

Additional Public Information Statements will be issued periodically
through the day, as survey teams report back their findings.

A major contribution to the success of our severe weather warning
program is the receipt of storm reports from all our customers and
partners. If you witnessed or are aware of any storm damage due to
high winds or tornadoes, please contact your local emergency
management office. You can also report severe weather by using
