The same storm which generated a tornado in Putnam County regenerated a new EF1 tornado once it crossed into Greene County at Lake Oconee.  The tornado first touched down along Reynolds Parkway within the Creek Club Reynolds Plantation subdivision snapping an uprooting a few trees.  As the tornado continued NE through the subdivision it intensified to maximum intensity near the golf course at Rose Creek and Cottage Lane. Several well built homes sustained minor roof damage from wind or debris. Hundreds of trees were snapped or uprooted in the area between Sandy Ford and Rose Creek. The tornado reached the point at the end of Rose Creek where several homes had trees fall on them caused more significant damage. A portion of dock at a home on Rose Creek was lifted out of the water and thrown onto the shore and numerous boathouses sustained major damage. The storm crossed a portion of Lake Oconee and emerged into another subdivision along Cherokee Drive, Cloudland Ct. and Eagle Bluff Drive where numerous trees were snapped and uprooted. Several homes sustained damage from trees here as well. The storm crossed Bouldercrest Way and Sun Valley Ct, across another portion of Lake Oconee and up Club Drive snapping and uprooting trees.  The tornado weakened a bit as it moved up Armour Rd with EF0 type tree damage and crossed Fleur de Lac Lane where a pocket of EF1 tree damage was observed and a home was severely damaged from a falling tree. The storm continued to weaken as it moved NE and dissipated as it crossed Veaszy and White Plains Rd where a tree was knocked over. In total, an estimated 35 to 40 homes were impacted by trees from this tornado.
