During the pre-dawn hours of February 6th, within a fast-moving line of strong to severe thunderstorms, a brief tornado touched down along the Bartow/Gordon county line in northwest Georgia. The worst of the damage was confined to a small area along East Plainview Road SE where 10-12 large trees were uprooted and a manufactured home had its entire roof ripped off and was slightly moved off its foundation. Trees and debris were thrown to the north, nearly perpendicular to the east-northeast storm movement.  Homes on either side of this location sustained some roof damage as well, but no significant structural damage was noted. The tornado continued east-northeast, hitting another home and lifting and damaging part of its front deck. A few small trees were snapped along Shope Lake Road SE.  The tornado dissipated just east of this point. 

Note:  The End latitude/longitude is in Bartow County.  This county is not officially listed in the survey but it states it was along the county line.
