BROOKS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

A tree more than 100-feet tall crushed a pick up truck in Brooks County.

Here's that smashed truck near the intersection of Raidon and Fletcher Streets in Morven.

15-year old Cody Thompson says the truck belongs to his grandmother.

It damaged a few mobile homes when it fell as well but thankfully no one was hurt.

Crews in Brooks County also had a busy day getting trees off power lines.

"About four o'clock I was just half asleep and I just heard glass shattering everywhere," said Cody Thompson.  "It was just wind whistling and glass shattering the whole trailer was shaking."

"It sounded like a train in the distance and then the wind picked up all the sudden," said Jerry Moore.

The roof of Moore's shelter in Berrien County which covers his tractors blew off and the pieces of tin and debris hit his home.

Irrigation pivots on Tifton Highway were turned upside down there and trees fell breaking out windows in homes in Ray City.
