ATLANTA (AP) — Officials have determined that a tornado destroyed a mobile home, damaged a barn and toppled trees in Twiggs County.

The tornado was rated an EF-1 on the Enhanced Fujita scale, which measures tornado intensity based on damage assessments.

The Twiggs County tornado struck on a day when forecasters issued a tornado watch for 72 counties in south and central Georgia.
