The White County, GA tornado

I guess the two tornadoes which struck White County must have been in the "family". One of them started in Hall County, where I lived 10 1/2 years.

The F2 one apparently was the one which struck Helen, which itself is a resort/tourist attraction. Looked like it turned a nice hotel into plywood. Amazing the powerful reach of this storm, even with the few (compared to last years 'canes) tornadoes it produced.
