Just days after being hit by a destructive tornado, residents of Coweta County were hit again. This time the southwest portion of the county, near Lake Blalock, was in the crosshairs. A tornado rated F2 on the intensity scale created a path of damage over 4 miles long and up to about 200 yards wide. Numerous trees were knocked down or broken in half. Several homes suffered significant damage - with at least one totally destroyed. Remarkably, there were reportedly no injuries.
The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Peachtree City, who had issued a Tornado Warning in advance of the storm, conducted a survey of the damage the following day. This was done to determine the strength of the winds and to assign an intensity rating to the tornado. Below are some of the photos taken during the survey.
