Georgia Tornado flattens trees, leaves home untouched

You have to see it to believe it!

The March 3rd Tornado that swept its way through a Georgia neighbourhood carved a distinguishing path through a wooded area – leaving hundreds of downed trees.

In the middle of the down trees stands a two-story home that made it through the Tornado seemingly untouched. It’s something you have to see!

Ellerslie, GA resident Matt Gillespie captured drone footage of the devastation left behind by the Tornado1 – see in video below.

1: This Tornado took the lives of twenty three people – including four people – and caused significant damage in Lee County Alabama before it tore into GA. When the Tornado was in AL it was casuing EF-4 damage – seventy-mile path.

When the Tornado reached Ellerslie and Waverly Hall, GA it was causing EF-2 damage. So it’s safe to suggest that it weakened slightly.

Gillespie said in a Facebook post that his parents’ home also suffered damage by the Tornado. However, no injuries were reported.
