Georgia tornadoes | Areas confirmed by National Weather Service

2 min read

Among the counties hit were Troup, Spalding, and DeKalb.

ATLANTA — The National Weather Service has confirmed that at least four tornadoes touched down in Georgia during Thursday’s severe storms.

Among the counties hit were:

  • DeKalb County
  • Meriwether County
  • Spalding County
  • Troup County
  • Warren County

Thursday’s storms left reports of damage throughout metro Atlanta.

Crews with the National Weather Service are expected to survey many of these areas Friday to inspect that damage and gather more detail.

“We will get to these areas as soon as we can, but due to the extent and magnitude of damage across the area, it will likely take several days to see everything,” the NWS said in its late-night Thursday report.

North Georgia was under an enhanced risk, Level 3 out of 5, for severe weather Thursday. Most of the area spent the day under a tornado watch with conditions triggering tornado warnings even through metro Atlanta. Most of the region was under a severe thunderstorm warning through the afternoon.

Cars were flipped and barreled through buildings in Spalding County. Trees toppled over and crushed cars in the area as well as in Troup County, with downed power lines and fallen debris blocking roads across north Georgia.

Correction: This story has been updated to more accurately reflect the number of tornadoes confirmed by the National Weather Service.
