Report issued December 16, 2007
at least 3 confirmed tornadoes in Central Georgia...

On Saturday evening, December 15, 2007, a supercell thunderstorm moved out of South Georgia into the central part of the state. As it plowed through Wilcox County, it generated a short-lived tornado and then produced straight line winds with speeds up to 100 mph. The storm later generated another short-lived tornado in Dodge County, and then one last twister in Treutlen County. There were no reported injuries, but the Fire Department in Lothair (Treutlen County) suffered the total loss of their building. There were several mobile homes and other structures either damaged or destroyed. The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Peachtree City, GA surveyed the damage and submitted a preliminary report.
