Episode Narrative A deep and intensifying upper trough was moving from the southwest U.S. into the southeast U.S. from March 27th through the 29th. Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms preceded the final passage of the upper low on the 29th. Three to four inches of rain fell across many areas of north and central Georgia during this three-day period. A number of streams, creeks, and rivers reached or exceeded bankful across north and central Georgia as the result of several days of at least moderate rainfall. In addition, a number of the thunderstorms became severe on the 29th as the main upper trough moved through the area. While most of the severe weather was in the form of damaging winds and hail, an isolated tornado was observed in Dooly county during the late morning hours on the 28th.
Event Narrative The Manchester Star Mercury reported that heavy rain, upwards of two inches during the afternoon on already saturated ground, caused a 27-foot long gas tank at the Quick Stop Food Mart on Georgia Highway 85 to rise out of the ground. This occurred despite the fact that there were eight inches of concrete on top of the tank. The tank had been empty for some time.
