Report: At Least One Tornado Caused By Hurricane Irma

Officials say at least one tornado has been reported in coastal Georgia as strong winds and drenching rains from Tropical Storm Irma hammer the state.

Irma's center was forecast to cross the Georgia-Florida line Monday afternoon but tropical storm winds were extending more than 400 miles.

The National Weather Service placed most of Georgia under a tropical storm warning.

Glynn County emergency officials had no immediate reports of tornado damage. They said in news release Monday that residents who didn't evacuate need to shelter in place. 

Gov. Nathan Deal has declared a state of emergency for all of Georgia.
