Praying for those in Newnan.

Lots of folks having gone to bed for the night may have been blindsided by this.

Especially since GA wasn't exactly expected to be the main show today

Reminds me of Jefferson City, except this path went directly over Newnan's courthouse square and historic downtown.  Then lots of apartments and some higher density suburbs now.

Not sure if as intense as that one but I get the comparison.

Idiot ADD image producers on The Weather Channel tossing up a highway cam on the southwest side of Hartsfield airport, 20 miles from the tornado.  It would have to turn NNE to hit there, so it won't come close, but shiny objects producers.

The on-air staff and the radar staff are doing a great job, I hate to see that watered down by the clown show side of production.
