Office: BMX NOUS44 KBMX 171845 PNSBMX ALZ011>015-017>050-180645- Public Information Statement National Weather Service Birmingham AL 145 PM CDT Fri Aug 17 2018 ...NWS DAMAGE SURVEY FOR AUGUST 16, 2018 MICROBURST TENT COLLAPSE... A thunderstorm formed along the Jefferson/Blount county line, near the town of Warrior, during the early evening of August 16th, 2018. This storm moved northward as it reached peak intensity, and produced an area of microburst winds that aided in the complete collapse of a large tent at Traditions Park in Hayden/extreme southwestern Blount County around 7:25 PM. The only other damage observed in the area was a few small limbs that were downed. The tent's sidewalls/curtains were rolled up during the event, likely enhancing the uplift of the structure. Several anchoring plates were tugged upward from the ground, and there were multiple tears along portions of metal support beams and joints from stress on the structure. Based on the large surface area of the tent, the absence of significant damage immediately adjacent to the tent, and eye witness accounts, winds during the storm were estimated to be sub-severe, in the neighborhood of 40 MPH. There were a total of 12 injuries that resulted from the tent collapse; 6 required transport, and a total of 3 were classified as having serious injuries. There were no fatalities. Note: The information in this statement is preliminary and subject to change pending final review of the event and publication in NWS Storm Data. $$ 89^GSatterwhite 15/Darden
