The National Weather Service has announced that a tornado touched down in the New Columbus area about 3:40 p.m. on Oct. 7.
With several damaged homes and trees, the announcement probably didn’t surprise residents who weathered the storm.
Chris Blevins, of 4180 Georgetown Road, said the winds hit his home around 4:30 p.m.
“Things just started breaking, Blevins said, “Some of the trees, they were snapping. It’s crazy,”
Several trees in his yard, one measuring perhaps two feet in diameter, were damaged.
