National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed damage in Bibb County and assessed damage that was consistent with a tornado.  An EF-0 tornado with winds of 70 to 80 mph briefly touched down between Lawley and Randolph in southeast Bibb County.  Damage along the beginning of the path was only 50 yards wide.  This was along Hwy 82, where only large limbs were broken.  The tornado then lifted just east of County Road 36.  Here, the damage was 150 yards wide with numerous trees uprooted and snapped.
