Teams from the National Weather Service in Peachtree City have spent part of their week assessing storm damage across Georgia, and an EF-0 tornado was responsible for damage in an area of Lumpkin County.

The tornado touched down around Long Branch Road and Robinson Road on Tuesday, May 4 and traveled about 4.8 miles, according to information publicized on the Lumpkin County Sheriff's Office Facebook page. Investigators determined the tornado weakened and lifted near Claude Parks Road.

Meanwhile, NWS forecaster Dylan Lusk said straight-line winds were responsible for the damage along Mud Creek Road and Old Cornelia Highway in Hall County the same day. Lusk said investigators estimated 60-70 mph winds brought down trees and power poles. 

No one was injured in the Hall County storms, but several houses were damaged and the American Red Cross was called to assist one family that was displaced as a result of damage to their home. 

Tornadoes also were confirmed this week in Douglas, Fulton, Oglethorpe and Walton counties. A tornado with 90 mph winds damaged homes along a five-mile stretch north of Athens on Monday.
