Tornadoes May Have Touched Downe in Northeast Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) - A team from the National Weather Service is surveying damage in northeast Georgia to determine whether tornadoes touched down as the remnants of Fay soaked the state.

The Weather Service says the worst damage Tuesday appeared to be in the Commerce area in Jackson County, where dozens of mobile homes were damaged or destroyed.

Meteorologist Matt Sena says a team is traveling Wednesday to Jackson and Hall counties to see whether the damage may have been
from tornadoes.

Wednesday's forecast calls for a small chance of rain. But Sena says the system that moved in Friday and brought as much as 30 inches of rain to south Georgia has left the state.
