Tornado caught on camera by EMA Director

Tornado doesn’t touch ground as it comes through McIntosh County, but EMA Director Ty Poppell

spotted and videoed the monster coming across the Altamaha Delta just south of the Darien River Bridge on General’s Island  around 3:20 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

“I have never seen a tornado and it was huge!” Poppell said.

The Director sent the video of the monster tornado that stayed safely above the county to The Darien News, but we were unable to upload, due to the amazing inability of this technology-deficient editor and publisher.

Heavy rains and hail were experienced in areas of the county.

As soon as this first storm passed, City Police and McIntosh Deputies were checking the roadways to be sure everything was clear. By 4:40 p.m., deputies reported back that all was clear.

(P.S. If I figure out how to upload Ty’s video, I sure will! Kath
