Tornado Warnings issued for some Middle Georgia counties; Tornado Watch for all
The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Warning for: Macon County, Peach County, Houston County, Crawford County and Upson County.
Ahead of Hurricane Michael, the National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for ALL of Middle Georgia.
The watch runs through 2AM on Thursday.
A Tornado Watch means that conditions favoring tornado development are in place, that tornadoes are possible within the given time frame, and that you should be prepared. Have a reliable way to get weather information and know where to go if tornadoes threaten your area. An interior room without windows on the lowest floor of your home offers the most protection.
Brief, weak tornadoes are common with landfalling tropical systems like Michael. They are typically more likely to the right of a storm's center.
If a tornado is happening or about to happen, a Tornado Warning will be issued. These warnings are usually issued for much smaller areas, like portions of one or two counties. If a warning is issued for your area, take shelter in a substantial building. Try to get to an interior room without windows on the lowest floor of your home. Mobile homes are not safe in strong winds and may blow over.
