Survey summary:
official NWS and Morgan County Ema storm survey concluded that
microburst winds led to the damage reported in the east central
Morgan County, near the Fowler Cove area. The swath of damage
extended approx 1 mile in width and about 0.6 mile in
length, mainly along and adjacent to cotaco Florette Rd and
Fowler Cove Road. The survey team focused on two main areas:
the northern extent of the swath (on Dotson rd) and the southern
extent (further south on cotaco Florette rd). Along the southern extent,
significant tree damage was observed with several Hickory trees
either snapped or uprooted with numerous large branches down. Debris
was oriented W to WSW. Winds peaked at the southern portion of the
damage swath, with an estimate at 76 mph.

Further north, the survey team observed a couple Bradford pear
trees uprooted with numerous small and large branches downed,
all oriented toward the W. Winds on the northern end of the
swath were estimated at 55 mph.

the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to
