Evergreen, ALA. An EF-0 tornado touched down just to the southeast of downtown Evergreen, Alabama on Monday morning, April 7, 2014. A damage survey by the Mobile office of the National Weather Service found a weak tornado formed west of the city hospital at 6:50am, and traveled to the northeast, dissipating one minute later.

Along the path, trees were uprooted and minor structural damage was done to the hospital, technical school and baseball field.

The maximum width of this tiny twister was 150 yards. It formed in a squall line while a tornado watch was in effect.
