TALBOTTON, Ga. (WIAT) — Our neighbors to the east did not escape unscathed from Sunday’s storms. After devastating Lee County, Alabama and surrounding areas, that severe weather rolled over into Georgia, leaving a path of widespread destruction as you can see here in this drone video. Trees and telephone poles were downed, and some buildings were completely leveled after a tornado passed through Talbotton, Georgia.
In Alabama, a press conference was planned for this morning to address the damage that’s been assessed so far, and the search and rescue efforts that are expected to resume Monday morning to locate some of the missing after Sunday’s tornadoes.
