Lt. Ben Finley traced a map of the tornado’s path with the back of his pen, outlining the areas in Forsyth County with the most destruction. A larger map of the Cumming Aquatic Center — one of the Forsyth County Emergency Management Agency’s (EMA) commodity distribution points — spread across his desk at Forsyth’s Emergency Operations Center, or EOC, which is located in the basement of the county’s public safety complex on Settingdown Road. “You can see where we’d have our stations set up and we’d have a message board on Ga. 400 directing people northbound, because this area is right outside the tornado,” Finley said.
