Georgia Weather History for August 1st

In 1961, an unusually strong thunderstorm with excessive rain and strong winds caused widespread minor damage in the Athens area (Clarke County). Trees were uprooted and electric and phone service was disrupted in parts of the city. Eleven fires were started by lightning and one house burned down. One woman suffered an injury when lightning struck her home.

In 2012, severe storms with high winds moved across much of north and central Georgia. The highest wind gust was estimated at 75 MPH in Forsyth County near Cumming. These winds produced $200,000 in damages in Forsyth County alone.
