ADAIRSVILLE, GA (WSB) - We have amazing video of a tornado striking down in northwest Georgia on Wednesday.  You can see a huge funnel cloud moving through Adairsville.  That's about 60 miles northwest of Atlanta.

A local reporter said the twister formed right in front of him. He said the tornado destroyed a home and flipped over several cars.

The Bartow County fire chief says the storm's high winds caused also significant damage to a motel and a manufacturing plant.

The Georgia Department of Transportation said all lanes of Interstate 75 were blocked in both directions near Adairsville due to the messy weather.
