A tornado with 90-mph winds focused its damage in Fulton County Nov. 10, according to the National Weather Service.

The tornado, which was rated as an F1 in severity, appeared to do the most damage in the Camp and Saddle areas, said meteorologist John Robinson, who conducted the storm survey.

Robinson said some of the most severe structural damage occurred southeast of Camp along Honey Tree Road. Here, Robinson said he saw a mobile home that shifted 3 feet off its foundation and a barn that was destroyed.

Robinson also reported some structural damage about a mile northwest of Saddle near the intersections of Forrest Hill and Shiloh Cemetery Roads.

A doublewide mobile home that had been disassembled for transportation was severely damaged. One half of the mobile home had broken windows and roof damage. The other portion of the home was blown over into a hollow, Robinson said.

Beyond these damages Robinson also saw numerous uprooted trees and power lines down, as well as various residences that had minor damages like broken windows and peeled back roofs.
