Along with pollen, colorful blooms and rain, spring can bring violent weather. The peak season in the South for tornadoes is March through May, and volatile weather changes can mean storms pop up unexpectedly. While Bulloch and surrounding counties have experienced damage from straight-line winds and other storms over the past few years, the most recent documented tornado occurred four years ago on March 26, 2011.
