Reports of tornadoes yesterday afternoon across middle Georgia, and overnight across south Georgia. Tennille, Warner Robins and Adel are among the towns affected. High risk for severe weather across south Georgia today. Some friends of mine near Valdosta had to seek shelter twice last night, but they're OK, thankfully.

Unless a variable or two changes significantly at the last minute, today is going to be a long day in Georgia. Keep an eye to the sky, and an ear to the radio.

Albany, GA was hit very hard. I witnessed damage in Sylvester, Doles, Highway 300, MCLB and extensive damage in East Albany and South Albany. This just two weeks after 4-mile swath of freakish 80-90 MPH winds damaged a large area of Albany.

My sister and family live in Albany. It's been a very hard January for the folks down there.

We are not used to this kind of thing at all. It has probably been a century or more since Albany saw a EF3 tornado, much less a mile wide.

Combined with the cleanup from Jan 2nd's storm, authorities as saying that debris cleanup can be a year or longer.

Something's not right here. The FEMA response has been painfully slow.

I'm a Trump supporter and I agree. I don't have an understanding of how this works, but I do know that Trump called Governor Deal and pledged support and specifically mentioned Albany, Ga.

But there's some other odd things happening as well. Our local media is not reporting on the severity of the storm. I've worked chainsaw and search and rescue crews and even I was surprised by the extent of the damage. I spoke to my neighbor this evening and he had no idea of the extent of the damage. Also, I've heard from an ex-police officer and several nurses that are working search and rescue in the Paradise Village are that the death toll is severely under-reported. Could approach 100. I certainly hope not, but there is just some weirdness going on.

Also, don't you DARE ask for or expect help from FEMA. You went nuts when they helped Blacks in New Orleans, but now when YOU need help, you beg them for it?
PATHETIC
Save your nonsense for PoC.

I was watching the storm barrel towards Albany and thought, Christ, if that thing hits...

The total number of tornadoes that were confirm on the weekend of January 21-22, 2017 were 22. Breaking an old record of 15 that stirred during 1976. Out of the 22 tornadoes that formed in Georgia on the same weekend (1/21-22/2017) eighteen of them were in Middle Georgia. These record breaking tornadoes that hit the state this year alone killed sixteen people.
