MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed that tornadoes were responsible for damage to trees and buildings during storms over the weekend.

The weather service said that its damage surveys are ongoing, but that it’s already confirmed two tornado paths carved during Sunday’s storms.

It estimates that both tornadoes were EF-1 twisters, among the weakest on the Enhanced Fujita scale of tornado strength.

The weather service said one tornado traveled more than four miles, stripping the roof from a metal building and tossing several roof-top air conditional units at a shopping mall in Russell County. That tornado also damaged several homes as it crossed two subdivisions before reaching the Alabama-Georgia line.

Forecasters said another EF-1 tornado path was found in another part of Russell County, where it crossed over mostly unpopulated and waterlogged land.
