Alabama Tornado History

On February 25, 1934 a significant tornado outbreak occurred in the Southern states of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Three of the six tornadoes happened in Alabama. The first tornado in the state, an F2, touched down in Shelby County in the cities of Calera and the eastern section of Columbiana. One man was killed in the Kingdom community, and 11 people were injured in Calera.

Next, an F4 tornado plowed through the Ashland and Shady Grove communities of Clay County. Ninety homes were damaged or destroyed in this county, with 4 deaths and 40 injuries.

The last tornado that day in Alabama hit Randolph County and continued on into Carroll County, Georgia. Most of the damage from this F2 tornado happened in Bowden, Georgia. There were 30 fatalities and two injuries from this twister in the Peach State.
