No injuries were reported early Wednesday morning when a tornado caused damage in southeast Alabama. The tornado was spawned from a supercell storm.

The National Weather Service (NWS) confirmed the tornado was an EF-1.

According to a preliminary report, the tornado first hit near Clayton around 4:50 a.m., not far from the Clayton Municipal Airport. Signs of damage were observed in an open field just west of County Road 43. Several trees were uprooted in an open field.

The tornado was observed on radar and meteorologists shared those images.

Winds of up to 90 mph from the tornado also caused damage after crossing County Road 53. That’s where fallen trees damaged homes. The NWS said the damage was minor.

After crossing Highway 30, the tornado caused damage to a construction business. The tornado continued northeast and eventually weakened as it crossed County Road 79.

The twister lifted around 5:07 a.m. in the area of White Oak.
