This severe thunderstorm was observed at the Huntsville (AL) International Airport, 2.3 miles south of I-565 on County Line Road. I reported an estimated wind gust of 60 mph to the NWS Huntsville at 6:30 p.m. Take a look at the video. It was hard to estimate wind speed without many trees nearby. The wind created a loud roaring sound that lasted for about 10 minutes. Storm reports from the NWS Huntsville.
6:34 Columbus Nexrad - My location was at the green triangle southeast of Athens and southwest of Huntsville.
