Albany, Georgia Damage Survey

These results are preliminary. On the afternoon of 22 January 2017, a large tornado struck the Radium Springs neighborhood of Albany, GA. The maximum rating of the tornado is EF3, based in part on the damage to at least one of the structures shown in the interactive map below. Here, debris and treefall patterns are superimposed on a pre-storm satellite view of the neighborhood surveyed by the UNCA/UGA/UIUC research group. Large dots represent debris locations, colored by source structure; blue dots and arrows represent standing and fallen trees; red arrows indicate travel direction of debris from the source; and yellow dots indicate locations of non-debris photographs. Purple dots correspond with debris from 105 Camellia Rd, with light purple dots showing locations of wood with a unique purple paint; green dots indicate debris from 107 Camellia Rd.; white dots indicate debris from the carport at 207 Dogwood Rd.; and pink dots indicate debris from the carport at 106 Skywater Rd.
