Worth County-  As a second line of storms moved through South Georgia early Sunday.  A tornado touched down in Worth County, between Doles and Warwick. 

The tornado, which was 200 yards wide, stayed on the ground for six and a half miles through Worth County.

Steve Andrew's farm was directly in the path. A grain silo was damaged and boards from Andrew's barn were flung into the ground, one in the shape of a cross.  Winds speeds in Worth County were estimated at 100 miles per hour. 

That same tornado then crossed into Crisp County. Sheriff Donnie Harralson said as many as 20 structures were damaged.  The EF-1 tornado stayed on the ground in Crisp County for a little more than seven miles.

The heaviest damage is along Arabi-Warwick Road. Mobile homes were damaged, trees were twisted and uprooted, power lines were snapped. The Arabi Cemetery along Highway 41 also received heavy tree damage. No one in the county was injured.
