The meteorological service will analyze the damage of the Wetumpka storm on Sunday


Was the storm that caused significant damage in Wetumpka on Saturday afternoon a tornado?

And how strong was it?

Those are questions that could be answered on Sunday.

The Birmingham National Weather Service said it will send two survey teams to Alabama, in the center south of the country, to observe the damage caused by the storms on Saturday, and several of them had tornado warnings.

The most significant was in Wetumpka, where injuries and major damages were reported today.

Damages, injuries reported in Wetumpka

An NWS team will badyze the damage in Elmore County, where Wetumpka is located.

A second team will visit the counties of Dallas, Autauga and Coosa.

The survey teams will badyze the damage in those areas and determine if it was caused by a tornado.

If it is a tornado, it will be awarded a rating on the Improved Fujita Scale, which ranges from EF0 to EF5.

The meteorological service said that due to the amount of potential leads, it could take more than a day to complete all the surveys.
