ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Storm damage has been reported in several areas in southwest Georgia. WALB sent a crew to Lee County to cover some of the damage from Saturday's severe thunderstorm. A tornado was also reported in Chokee, which is in the northeast part of Lee County.

The storm damaged Lee County's Ninth Grade Academy and the Lee County Maintenance facility. It also snapped trees near homes off Groover street, and even sent a trampoline into a nearby pond off Groover and Old Stage road. The Crisp County Sheriff also says a pecan tree came down on a home on Scenic Rt. near Coney Road.

Viewers sent us pictures of hail at Lake Blackshear in Sumter County. The Tornado watch is in effect until 9:00 p.m.
