It was no contest for a 250-foot tower in Smith Station, AL Sunday night, when a tornado ripped through Lee County, taking down the latticed structure located along Highway 280. The National Weather Service said the twister was at least EF-3 in strength with winds of 136-to-165 mph and was a half-mile wide or more.  

According to Tower Genius‏, the site is owned by American Tower Corporation and had three or four carriers.

Tragically, at least 25 people were reported dead from the storm. 

More than 35,000 customers in Alabama and Georgia lost power Sunday, AccuWeather reported and crews are expected to continue restoring electricity as they survey damage to other utilities.
