Survey Summary:
A tornado briefly touched down in Irwin County south of Ocilla, GA
and produced mainly EF0 damage along its path, largely in the form
of uprooted trees with some smaller trees snapped. The tornado was
at its strongest near the end of its damage path where EF1 damage
was assessed. This is also the only area where structural damage
was noted. A mobile home was knocked several feet off its
foundation, but remained upright. Most of the roof was torn off. A
large hardwood tree was snapped in half and many others were
uprooted. Several out buildings were destroyed and shingles were
stripped from the roof or one home.
