Watch: Tornado Tears Through Georgia Town

Two deaths have been blamed on the system, including one in Adairsville
Related: Tornadoes


This video shows a powerful tornado that ripped through parts of Georgia Wednesday, Jan. 29.
At least two tornadoes associated with a powerful system tore through the Adairsville area. Two deaths have been blamed on the system, including one in Adairsville.

Bartow County Fire Chief Craig Millsap said the body was found in the storm damage but did not have further details on how the person died. The same system also was blamed for a death in Tennessee. Most dangerous were powerful wind gusts that in several places were powerful enough to overturn tractor-trailers.

Reports are emerging that 100 vehicles were overturned near exit 306 on Interstate 75.

There were also reports that people were trapped in homes and businesses, and television footage showed large sections of a sprawling manufacturing plant had been destroyed.

Since Tuesday, the system had caused damage across a swath from Missouri to Georgia.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Although I live in the midwest now, Tennessee is my native home. My thoughts and prayers are especially with you now. God bless you Georgians and Tennesseeans.
