  • A WVUA 23 viewer spotted a funnel cloud moving through Tuscaloosa from their location on Upper Hulls Road.
  • Hail spotted across from Target on Veterans Memorial Parkway.
  • Hail spotted in Holt
  • Minor damage in the Peterson area

The Tuscaloosa Emergency Management Agency reported trees down and flooding around Tuscaloosa County in the wake of the storm. Those areas have since been cleared.
