#8 DO YOU REMEMBER the “Governor’s Tornado” in Atlanta in 1975? Reporters named it that because it tore the roof off the Governor’s Mansion on West Paces Ferry Road. It started in West Atlanta, moved to the northeast at approximately 50 miles an hour and ended in the Brookhaven Area. It hit an industrial area, two large apartment complexes, several businesses, and hundreds of fine homes. 550 families were reported homeless.  Damage was estimated at $56.5 million.
