EF-0 tornado passes through Screven, GA

SCREVEN, GA (WTOC) -

A short-lived EF-0 tornado formed near Screven, GA, around 6:15 Thursday evening near Burch Farms and Dixie Road. 

There are no reports of any injuries but there are reports of trees down with one falling on a car. There are also reports that a couple of sheds or homes may have been damaged. 

Brooke Gravley recorded the video over a field outside Screven.

The National Weather Service categorized it as an EF-0. Those carry winds of 65 to 85 miles per hour.

“I was actually sending a co-worker a Snapchat of the rain because we'd been talking about the weather before. And I still had my phone in my hand when my mama said "Look, a tornado,’” Gravley said.

It disappeared as quickly as it came. She says a separate one took down these trees and pulled off the roof of this shed. The debris shows just how strong and sudden a tornado can be at any level.

Gravley is just grateful nobody got hurt.

    Most people don't want to know much more about alligators than where they are, so they can go the other way. But researchers from the University of Georgia want to track the gators in the Okefenokee Swamp to know their every move.
