Possible tornadoes leave path of significant damage in south Georgia

A number of counties reported potential tornadoes.

(Editor's note: The video at the top of this article is related to tornadoes in the north Georgia area two weeks ago.)

A number of reported tornadoes tore through south Georgia on Thursday, leaving behind a trail of damage.

After a broad swath of the state was put under a level 3 severe weather risk by the National Weather Service, north Georgia was spared much storm activity this morning and was ultimately downgraded to a level 2.

But southwest Georgia counties were not so lucky, with Albany NBC affiliate WALB reporting numerous areas suffering damage.

Videos and images from the area showed what appeared to be a large tornado in Moultrie, in Colquitt County.

The city of Moultrie also posted photos of damage there.

More damage from a suspected tornado was reported in Pleham, in Mitchell County.

Adel, in Cook County, also saw heavy damage.

All of Pelham, Moultrie and Adel sit along a corridor about 50 miles long. Pelham is about 30 miles south of Albany, Adel about 30 miles north of Valdosta.

As the storm system moved east, heavy rains and winds were reported in that region as well. Jekyll Island and Brunswick were among the places that were issued tornado warnings.
