... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Charleston SC has confirmed a
tornado at Fort Stewart in Liberty County Georgia on 02/03/16.

A tornado began near gate 7 of The Fort Stewart base complex...
likely near EF0 strength. The tornado moved northeast at
approximately 35 mph through the center of the base. Much of
the damage throughout the base was EF0 to high end EF1.
The most significant damage started at the Taylors Creek
Golf course... then stretched east-northeast through a small
neighborhood to Diamond Elementary School. Several large Pine
trees were uprooted and/or snapped throughout The Golf Course and
neighborhood area. Approximately 6 to 10 homes were heavily
damaged in this neighborhood due to large Pine trees falling
on them. One home had nearly 75 percent of the roof removed...
but the roof was not strapped down to the walls... which kept
the strength rating to EF1.

Three cars were rolled over or moved approximately 20 feet
in the parking lot of Diamond Elementary School. The school
had roof damage on one corner of the gymnasium. As the
tornado continued to move northeast it snapped many trees and
downed power lines along hero Road... near eisenhower Village.
After this point... the tornado continued northeast into a
heavily wooded area with sporadic snapped trees and downed
limbs until lifting near Highway 144. The tornado lasted
approximately 10 to 12 minutes before dissipating at
Highway 144.

Total damage reported along the path of the tornado included
approximately 42 homes... 150 to 200 vehicles... and 8 unit
facilities within or near Fort Stewart area.
