An EF-0 tornado began near Macland Rd west of Hiram-Acworth Highway just north of Hiram in eastern Paulding County and traveled east-northeast for nearly 4 miles into western Cobb County.  Most of the damage was weak and intermittent but the most notable occurred on Cristy Dr where a dozen large trees were snapped or uprooted, one of which falling on the master bedroom of a 2-story home. The tornado caused minimal damage as it moved into west Cobb but downed 15-20 trees around Lost Mountain Rd and Kingsbridge Pass including the Oakleigh subdivision.  No significant structure damage was observed in this area.  Shortly after this point, the tornado lifted.
