Severe Weather Closes Park

Ocmulgee National Monument

National Park News

A series of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes caused extensive damage to a half dozen counties in central Georgia early on Sunday morning, but largely spared the park. Trees were downed and power was knocked out, though, so the park was closed. The park’s radio system was destroyed by a direct strike to the Georgia Forestry Commission tower where it was located. All park staff are fine, but some remain without power. A damage assessment is underway.
