tornado watch - albany.jpeg

Dougherty County is one of several Southwest Georgia counties that has been placed under a tornado watch by the National Weather Service.

The watch will remain in effect until 9 p.m.

A graphic released by the National Weather Service for the tornado watch, however, indicated gusts could go as high as 70 mph. Small, marble-sized hail is also possible and the threat of a few tornadoes is "likely."

In addition to Dougherty, other Southwest Georgia counties in the tornado watch area include: Baker, Calhoun, Clay, Early, Lee, Miller, Quitman, Randolph, Seminole, and Terrell.
