ATLANTA (AP) -- The National Weather Service says storms this week spawned a tornado that left a telltale path of destruction in north Georgia.<br />
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports ( http://on-ajc.com/1ttwS25 ) a weather survey team confirmed Friday that a tornado touched down Wednesday afternoon in Gilmer County near the Georgia-Tennessee state line. That's same day the Gainesville area was pounded by damaging storms. (See earlier story. Link below.)<br />
Weather service meteorologist Carly Kobacik said the twister was on the lower end of the scale, likely an EF1. But it damaged trees along a path a mile long.<br />
Kobacik said the survey team was still gathering details Friday.<br />
