The National Weather Service surveyed damage from a tornado that touched down Wednesday night in Dodge County and confirmed Friday that it was a weak EF0 tornado.
Most of the damage was minor, said Ryan Willis, a meteorologist for the National Weather Centers office in Peachtree City.
The tornado touched down in the south part of Eastman at 11:50 p.m. and traveled north about 1.75 miles through town, damaging tree limbs, siding, gutters and the roofs of a few homes.
Maximum winds were estimated to be 80 mph. According to radar data, the storm exhibited anticyclonic or clockwise rotation.
Most tornadoes in this hemisphere rotate counter-clockwise, Willis said, but every year a handful show the opposite.
It is interesting for us as meteorologists to see, but its not unheard of, Willis said.
