Survey Summary:
An EF-0 tornado tracked through Bainbridge, GA on Wednesday
afternoon, Dec 29th.  The tornado first touched down just
southwest of Evans St between S West St and Academy Street before
uprooting a tree on Evans St.  It then moved northeastward, with
minor damage noted to a small apartment building on Potter St and
a highway road sign knocked over on E Shotwell St.  Minor tree
damage and fallen branches were observed across E Broughton St, E
Water St, and Planter St.  The tornado then peeled back some of
the metal roofing of a convenience store on the corner of E
Calhoun St and Albany Rd and damaged a metal carport nearby.  The
tornado continued northeastward along Albany Rd, inflicting minor
roof damage to a home and snapping a few tree branches before
lifting just north of E Carter St.  The total track of the
tornado is estimated to be just under a mile with a maximum path
width of 50 yards, which occurred near the start of the tornado.
