February 24, 2019 Coweta County EF-1 Tornado:

A short-lived EF-1 tornado occurred in the city of Moreland in Coweta County within a line of thunderstorms that affected portions of west central Georgia early in the morning on Sunday, February 24, 2019. This tornado began near the intersection of Martin Mill Road and Tabby Linch Road where hundreds of large oak, pine, and pecan trees were snapped and uprooted. One house received damage from a falling tree on Tabby Linch Road. The metal roofing was also removed from a barn at another location on Tabby Linch Road.  The tornado then moved into the Gordon Oaks Subdivision, where numerous trees were snapped and uprooted and one house sustained damage when a large tree fell through the roof of the home and into the master bedroom. The occupants of this home received a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) 45 seconds to a minute prior to the tornado's arrival, allowing them time to leave the master bedroom. After downing more trees and powerlines, the tornado lifted along Moore Road.
