The tornado touched down about 11:30 p.m. in western Heard County and carved a 39-mile path through Heard, Fayette, and Coweta counties, the Weather Service said. The downtown Newnan area was the hardest hit, and Newnan High School sustained significant damage when the tornado blew through just after midnight.“The original high school building was built in 1888 with brick walls and sturdy stone and woodwork, yet the only wall failure was to a portion of the second-story brick wall near the front of the main campus building,” the Weather Service wrote in a preliminary report.March 27, 2021 Newnan – Photograph shows damages on LaGrange Street in the aftermath of the tornado that tore through the Newnan.
