A high end EF1 tornado touched down along Shady Dale Rd in Putnam County knocking down a few trees. The tornado continued NE through the Oconee National Forest downing trees and crossing Godfrey Rd where numerous trees were snapped or uprooted. Most of the damage to this point was rated EF0 to low end EF1. As the tornado moved NE crossing Reids Rd it intensified to maximum intensity snapping hundreds of trees 10 feet off the ground as it crossed the road. The storm continued NE crossing Hwy 129 snapping and uprooting trees. 3 homes located along the hwy sustained minor roof damage from the storm. The storm crossed Bethel Church Rd snapping trees and across Lower Harmony Road where the top of a silo was torn off in addition to roofing material from a nearby barn. The storm eventually crossed Denham road knocking over a few trees before lifting as it approached a neighborhood along Hunters Chase Ct.
