Deadly Tornado Outbreak Strikes Alabama and Georgia, U.S.


A fierce system has unleashed chaos across the Gulf Coast, unleashing a series of tornadoes and triggering severe flash flooding throughout the Southeastern United States.

The heart of the activity centered in southern Alabama and Georgia, wreaking havoc on rural communities.


In southern Georgia, the National Weather Service sounded the alarm with a Warning near Cogdell, while Coffee County emergency managers reported a confirmed touchdown west of Brixton, causing significant roof damage.

Meanwhile, Ward Bridge, Alabama, faced its own tornado scare, with radar confirming a tornado signature as spotters witnessed trees downed early Saturday morning, fortunately without any reported injuries.


The aftermath was devastating in rural Nahunta, Brantley County, Georgia, where at least one mobile home was obliterated and several others damaged, leaving 15 people displaced and 500 without power.

As Heather Mikels recounts her harrowing experience in the midst of the tornado's fury, authorities scramble to assess the extent of the damage and confirm the number of tornadoes that tore through Southeast Georgia.


In addition to the tornadoes, torrential rains pounded South Carolina, prompting Flash Warnings in Charleston. The deluge, combined with high tides, inundated roads and low-lying areas, forcing closures and impassabilities.

Isle of Palms, Charleston, and North Charleston grappled with severe flooding, aggravated by powerful gusts, while similar scenes unfolded in Cordele and Georgetown, Georgia, and Geneva, Alabama, underscoring the widespread impact of this relentless system.
