This track is about a mile too far South. First reported damage for this Tornado was at Windy Hill Road and Cobb Parkway, where it damaged a Wood frame building and two Gas Stations and a Car dealership. It traveled WNW to the intersection of Windy Hill Road and I-75, where it destroyed a very tall McDonald's sign and a large, well built Billboard.

I have photos of the damage and created a Google Map for this storm track at this link:

Video of this "Windy Hill" Tornado was captured by a Cobb County Police in-car video
camera, which has been shown on the Weather Channel or one of the Discovery Channels (maybe
both, I can't remember exactly which.
