6 tornadoes touch down in north Georgia

The National Weather Service confirmed six tornadoes touched down in north Georgia on Wednesday.

Tornadoes touched down in Cobb County, central Fulton County, north Fulton County, near the Jackson/Banks County line, Carroll County and Catoosa County.

An EF-1 tornado touched down along Delta Court and crossed Six Flags Parkway, then Mableton Parkway, then along Discovery Boulevard in Cobb County. The tornado was 3/4 mile long, about 100 yards wide and had winds of 100 mph.

An EF-1 tornado was confirmed in the Buckhead area. The tornado touched down along Margaret Mitchell Court and moved towards the intersection of Northside Parkway and Moores Mill Road. Winds reached 90 mph. The tornado moved along Marne Drive and Arden Road before lifting around the West Paces Ferry Road and Habersham Road intersection.

A third tornado touched down in Alpharetta near Windward Parkway and the Big Creek area. The EF-0 tornado had winds of 80 mph. It moved into southern Forsyth County along McGinnis Ferry Road and Curie Drive.

The fourth tornado, an EF-1, touched down near Commerce and reports say it extended from Jackson County into Banks County. The tornado had maximum winds of 90 mph. The path length was 2.8 miles, with a maximum width of 100 yards. It began near Maysville Road at Interstate 85 and ended near a BP gas station on Highway 441 near I-85.

A fifth tornado was confirmed Friday. The EF0 tornado touched in Carroll County along Lee Williams Road. The storm had winds of 75 mph.

The sixth tornado touched down in Catoosa County.

The National Weather Service surveyed damage from the tornadoes throughout the day Thursday.

Wednesday’s storms left a trail of damage across the metro area.

Some of the worst damage was in Cobb County.

"These tornadoes drop down, they may go along a path for maybe a mile or two, then they lift up and something else may touch down a couple of miles away," said David Nadler with the National Weather Service.

Nadler brought a survey team to check out damage in Mableton.

Rick Stewart's Action Tire was dinged by the storm.

"When the sirens went off, seconds later we ran inside and then it poured down rain and was shaking and the windows were vibrating and we were like, 'Are we OK or what?'" Rick Stewart said.

Some complained that tornado sirens near their homes did not go off, but Cobb County now uses a computerized system to turn on sirens only in the warning zone.

Wednesday's warning only hit the south part of the county and the three sirens in the zone went off when the warning went out.
