BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WDHN) — Earlier today, about half of the Tri-State was under a Marginal Risk for severe weather; however, the only tornado reported near our area actually happened outside of the Marginal Risk in Bainbridge, GA. The tornado touched down around 3 PM EST and was likely not on the ground for very long. There was no warning of any sort for this specific storm. The National Weather Service in Tallahassee will very likely be sending someone to survey the storm damage tomorrow to determine the intensity of the tornado. Videos and pictures on social media show downed trees, a toppled carport, and some signs were blown over. So far, we have not seen any reports of casualties.

There is another Marginal Risk for severe weather with tomorrows scattered showers and storms, so we will be keeping a very close eye on all of them. Just like today, an isolate damaging wind gust and/or an isolated tornado will be possible. The threat is low, but low does not mean it won’t happen. Today is evidence of that. Have a way to get weather alerts by downloading the WDHN Storm Team App, turning on your weather radio, and making sure your phone is charged. More strong to severe storms are expected this weekend as a line of storms moves through the area during the first half of Sunday.
