... NWS damage survey for 05/26/15 severe weather event...

.Overview... The National Weather Service in Peachtree City...
in conjunction with Harris and Meriwether County emergency
management... conducted ground surveys of storm damage from severe
thunderstorms that occurred late Tuesday /may 26/. Pockets of more
significant damage were seen in portions of Harris and Meriwether
counties. Damage was a result of both thunderstorm winds and a
tornado in two separate areas. Details of the storm damage are
below.

.Warm Springs/Raleigh tornado...

Rating: EF-1
estimated peak wind: 90 mph
path length /statute/: 9.75 miles
path width /maximum/: 350 yards
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: may 26 2015
start time: 3:41 PM EDT
start location: 2 miles west of Warm Springs
start lat/lon: 32.89205 / -84.71125

End date: may 26 2015
end time: 3:55 PM EDT
end location: 1.5 miles northwest of Woodbury
end lat/lon: 32.99517 / -84.60110

Survey summary:
a tornado briefly touched down within a cluster of severe
thunderstorms just west of Warm Springs /along Hwy 194/ in
southern Meriwether County. Much of the damage was to trees... either
snapped or uprooted as the tornado moved northeast before lifting
just northwest of the town of Woodbury. The worst of the damage
occurred between Roosevelt Highway and juke line Road where
numerous trees were snapped/twisted or uprooted. This is where the
determination of EF-1 rating happened with maximum winds of 90
mph. Due to the remoteness of this area and limited Road access...
it was difficult to survey spots between Roosevelt Highway and
Temple Dukes Road... but additional damage /trees down/ likely
occurred.

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes into
the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph
