Jan. 3, 2020 (FOX 5 Storm Team)

The National Weather Service has confirmed three tornadoes tore through Georgia on New Year’s Day.

Survey crews took a look at two locations in Monroe County and one in Crawford County that indicated a possible tornado on radar during Friday’s storm and confirmed all three had short-lived tornados touchdown.

The first happened around 2:18 p.m. about 5.8 miles northwest of Roberta in Crawford County. The 100-yard wide tornado stayed on the ground for about two minutes traveling just under a mile packing winds of about 75 mph, making it an EF-0. It picked back up again about 3.5 miles west-southwest of Musella.

The tornado downed multiple trees along Hopewell Road West and Taylor Road. It also caused part of the roof of a home to come off. No one was injured.

About 25 minutes later, in southwest Monroe County around 2:35 p.m., an EF-0, measuring 150-yards wide, touched down about 7.8 miles east-northeast of Culloden. Again the tornado stayed on the ground for about two minutes traveling about 1.2 miles, picking up about 9 miles east-northeast of Culloden.

Trees along Treadwell Road just before Rogers Church Road were downed. And less than a dozen structures saw some damage from the storm including a garage that was completely destroyed.

About 14 minutes later, around 2:51 p.m., an EF-1 tornado packing winds of 95 mph touched down about 7.9 miles east-southeast of Forsyth. The 200-yard-wide tornado stayed on the ground for about four minutes traveling about 3.5 miles before picking up about 5.7 miles south-southeast of Juliette.

The eastern Monroe County tornado showed up with a debris signature of Doppler radar. The survey found that the damage started around Rumble Road and Dames Ferry Road, where multiple trees were found snapped and uprooted. A mobile home was also tossed on its side during the storm. The path of damage ended near U.S. Highway 23/GA-87, just north of the Dames Ferry Road intersection.
