Middle School Damaged After Tornado Strikes Newton County, Georgia

Storm damage seen across Newton County, Georgia, on December 31 was the result of a tornado, the National Weather Service said.

Photographs and video taken in the area showed damage to commercial properties, as well as the Veterans Memorial Middle School in Covington.

This footage, recorded by Carl Foster on Friday, shows damage to the middle school after the storm passed through Covington.

“Just so happened we had stepped out of the house getting ready to go get something to eat there weren’t any warnings no sirens,” Foster told Storyful. “It was really a weird storm because there was no thunder no lightning only thing happened was the wind picked up some and then all of a sudden you see this big rush of clouds come over the neighborhood.” Credit: Carl Foster via Storyful
