Georgia Weather History for October 8th

In 2008, a strong cold front and upper trough moved through the mid-south. In addition, a wedge front was located across southern Georgia. While instability was minimal, thanks to the wedge front, strong shear associated with the upper system allowed one brief EF-0 tornado to develop near Fayetteville (Fayette County). The tornado caused the back wall of a two-story building to buckle outward while an air conditioning unit was also blown off the roof pad of an adjacent building. In total, this tornado caused $125,000 in damage.
