Bad storms made their way across Alabama and most of Georgia today and tornadoes caused wild damage.
This is the same storm front that caused a lot of damage as it rolled through Alabama earlier in the day and people caught this massive funnel on video. Atlanta News First shared it writing, "WOW! A large tornado damaged homes and uprooted trees in Alabama Thursday as a powerful storm system pushed through the South. The @nws in Birmingham said a “large and extremely dangerous tornado” caused damage as it moved through Selma."
Several video are hitting the internet that show how quick and dangerous the storms were that rolled through Georgia this afternoon. Storm forecasters warned of 50mph+ winds, and heavy rain. One time lapse from downtown Atlanta is pretty awesome to watch.
