Episode Narrative A strong southern stream short wave was moving from the southern plains toward the southeast. A cold front remained nearly stationary across the Tennessee Valley and into the Southern Plains. A long-lived squall line of severe thunderstorms tracked from the mid-south during the morning hours into the southeast by late afternoon, reaching the Georgia border around 5 pm. The line of thunderstorms weakened quickly as it progressed further eastward into the state, but not before blowing down several hundred trees and power lines, especially in parts of west central Georgia.
Event Narrative The Meriwether County Sheriff's Office reported that three trees were blown down in the Greenville area. One of the trees fell on a home causing damage to the structure.
