Tornado warning was never in effect for Muscogee or Chattahoochee counties

(WTVM) -

There was a technical error with the National Weather Service's software; a tornado warning for  Muscogee and Chattahoochee counties was never in effect, but a tornado warning for Marion, Talbot and Taylor counties was issued earlier this afternoon when a strong system of rotation was spotted in those areas. 

When a tornado warning is issued that means a strong rotation has been detected in the storm. A tornado may already be on the ground or is expected to develop shortly. 

If you are in the path of a dangerous storm, move indoors and to a basement or interior room on the ground floor. Stay ways from windows. If driving do not seek shelter under a highway overpass.  

Meanwhile, a tornado watch and thunderstorm warning remains in effect for parts of west central Georgia and east Alabama until 8:00 p.m. EST tonight.
