Shortly after the tornado outbreak of May 26-28, 1973, of which the Brent Tornado was a part, the National Weather Service conducted a study of the event and Weather Service performance.
Two important recommendations were made in the report:
Radar stations should be equipped with local warning radars and future tornado warnings should be issued for areas downstream for at least one hour, dependent on the storm’s forward speed.
The watch and warning maps are confined to Alabama storms which occurred on Sunday, May 27.
The Brent Tornado warning is the last map of the report and is located on the “NWS Report on Event pg 2”.
