Preliminary investigation indicates a maximum EF1 tornado occurred in Geneva County Alabama... The National Weather Service in Tallahassee, Florida has evaluated eyewitness reports, pictures, videos and weather radar data regarding the damage that occurred in central Geneva County on June 10, 2012. It has been determined that a tornado caused the damage. Here are some preliminary statistics on this event: * Event Date: June 10, 2012 * Event Type: EF1 Tornado * Estimated peak winds (mph): 100 mph * Injuries/Fatalities: None reported * Maximum path width: 1/4 mile * Damage path length: 9.6 miles * Event start time: 11:11AM CDT * Event end time: 11:34AM CDT * Event start location: 31.07/-85.89 * Event end location: 31.20/-85.82 It is believed that the damage path from this tornado was nearly continuous from where the tornado first touched down near Niva Drive-In Road and Highway 27, to where it dissipated just north of the Geneva County border east of Chancellor.
