NWS confirms at least 3 tornadoes touched down across Georgia on Thursday – WSB-TV Channel 2


TROUP COUNTY, Ga. — The National Weather Service confirmed at least three tornados touched down across Georgia during Thursday’s violent storms.

Gov. Brian Kemp has declared a State of Emergency for all of Georgia.

Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan says two of those tornadoes touched down in the Channel 2 Action News viewing area.

Monahan and Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brad Nitz tracked these tornadoes and other storms for almost three hours on Channel 2 Action News.

The tornadoes touched down in Spalding and Troup/Meriwether counties. An initial report of a tornado in DeKalb County was dropped.


The strength and amount of damage from each tornado will become available once NWS survey crews complete their assessments.

Monahan says the damage surveys could take days.
