ATLANTA - Georgia officials are seeking volunteers willing to help clean up after a series of tornadoes struck the state, killing 15 people and damaging thousands of homes.

The state's Emergency Management Agency says it's seeking people willing to assist with recovery efforts Saturday.

Officials say volunteers should come ready to remove debris, rake yards and saw downed trees. Authorities are asking that volunteers bring chain saws, hammers, hats and goggles.

Volunteers can check in starting at 8 a.m. at six locations in Trenton, Rome, Barnesville, Manchester, Griffin and Ringgold.
