Weather service says tornado hit Ga. mobile home

EASTMAN, Ga. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a tornado touched down in Dodge County and struck two mobile homes, including one that was ripped from its foundation, killing an occupant.

National Weather Service forecaster Vaughn Smith said Tuesday two other possible tornadoes during the storms that hit Georgia Monday night and early Tuesday are being investigated.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says the tornado that touched down there early Tuesday uprooted a double-wide mobile home. One occupant, 45-year-old Christopher McNair of Cochran, was killed and three others were injured.

Smith says the gusty winds from the storm are slowly dying down.

He says possible tornadoes are being investigated in Gilmer County and in Butts County, where a tree fell on a house, killing a father and his 4-year-old son.
