On this date:

You can call it the end of February and the beginning of “March Madness" when it comes to our weather, not basketball.  Just five years ago today two reported tornadoes were three miles northwest of Opelika. Homes destroyed, trees toppled, and vehicles overturned. Across the rest off the News 3 viewing area we had many reports of wind damage. On the back side of this front, the surface low swept through central Alabama and dumped 6.5 inches of snowfall across our area. Two years before this event on March 1, 2007 a tornado carved a path three miles northwest of Phenix City and just to the southeast of Smiths Station. The tornado destroyed homes in Green Island Hills; and in North Columbus, a Pharmacy, and newly built hotels had their roofs ripped off from this EF 2 tornado (111-135 mph winds). Later a more powerful tornado destroyed a hospital in Americus, Georgia and many neighborhoods were leveled.
