The east wing of a Church of Christ building in north Georgia was destroyed during a round of deadly tornadoes that swept through the Southeast Jan. 30.
The Adairsville Church of Christ sustained heavy damage in the storm. Church member Jeremy Barton sent photos of the devastation.
We will post additional information as we get it.
Here’s more on the storm from the Associated Press:

WSB-TV in Atlanta aired footage of an enormous funnel cloud bearing down on Adairsville. Winds flattened homes and wiped out parts of a big manufacturing plant in the city about 60 miles northwest of Atlanta. Pieces of insulation dangled from trees and power poles. A bank lost a big chunk of its roof.
Anthony Raines, 51, was killed when a tree crashed down on his mobile home, crushing him on his bed, Bartow County Coroner Joel Guyton said. Nine other people were hospitalized for minor injuries, authorities said.
