Local Weather History For July 14th...
1961: One farm home, two vehicles and several outbuildings were heavily damaged by a tornado late this evening near
Parnell in Hall County. The tornado bounced along the ground for about five miles. Several other storms late this evening
and early night produced damaging hail that in some cases wiped out thousands of acres of crops throughout Hall, Floyd,
Swisher, Hale, and Hockley Counties.
