Was your property damaged by the tornado?


The city government is continuing to gather data after last month's tornado.

Anyone whose property was damaged is encouraged to call City Hall at 478-414-4072.

The seven-mile-long tornado, according to the National Weather Service, began in the Wray Homes/West End projects before widening out and barreling past the new health department and Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin. The tornado, which was roughly 250 yards wide at its widest point, then followed along Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and over North Jefferson Street.

After battering parts of the Graham Homes/Boddie projects and Barrows Ferry Road, the tornado crossed the river and across Lake Laurel Road and Black Springs Road. 

The National Weather Service classified the tornado as an EF-1, which equals wind speeds between 86-110 miles per hour. An EF-1 is the second-lowest category behind EF-0. The scale goes from 0-5, with an EF-5 tornado equalling wind speeds of 200-322 miles per hour.
