BOSTON, GA (WALB) - The National Weather Service now says a tornado that hit northern Thomas County was an EF3.
That's a powerful storm that packs winds of up to 165 miles per hour.
But ironically Boston had the least amount of property damage, mostly trees. There were no injuries or homes destroyed.
Hundreds of pine trees were snapped, many of them uprooted as the storm tore a path through the area. Feedback
