It was a scary spring especially for Joplin, Missouri, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama as twisters devastated their cities and caused loss of life. But here in Georgia we had our fair share of twisters as well.
March 26: 2 tornadoes in Central Georgia, EF-0 in Laurens county and EF-0 along the Crisp-Sumter county line.
April 4-5: EF-2 touched down in Dodge County, and an EF-1 hit southern Bibb County.
April 15-16: 3 tornadoes across the state including an EF-1 in Bibb county about 5 miles north-northwest of Macon.
April 27-28: There were 15 tornadoes across the state. An EF-4 tornado occurred in Catoosa County causing seven fatalities and 30 injuries. There was an EF-3 tornado that crossed Pike, Lamar, Monroe and Butts counties causing two deaths in Lamar County.
The unusually active tornadic spring really boils down to one thing: the exit of La Niña.
