Three or four tornados touched down in our area. Here are some pics of the results. There were more dramatic scenes, but out of respect for the people mourning their losses, I did not take photos.

What part of Georgia are you located in?

I'm down in Savannah, and we didn't get any storms here. But, I understand that some other areas of the state did. My wife told me she talked to her son last night (living in the Buchanan, GA area) and he said the storms were pretty bad there.

I am in Byron, just south of Macon. We had it pretty rough. The police had roads in and out blocked, and trees, and debris stopped us from getting out anyway.

By the way, I posted earlier that there was no residential damage. I was not aware of this area, as the news channel did not report this. They were only reporting the commercial district. I went to the commercial area, to try to get shots, and was detoured, this was what i found. I am still in awe of the power of the storm, and feel deeply for those affected.

John, I feel really bad for those who lost property and loved ones and I applaud your sensitivity.

Thanks Dan. More photographer's need to consider feelings and circumstances before pushing the shutter release. Some good news out of my detour, and visit though. I contacted local media (tv and print), and produced the first images for them. They immediately dispatched reporters, and that should help in making others aware, so maybe those in need can get some relief.
