Chainsaw whine starts early in Terrell County

TERRELL COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Strong winds knocked trees over roads and blew down power lines in Terrell County Saturday morning. The sound of chainsaws started early that afternoon as Terrell County Correction officers and prisoners worked to clear blocked roads.

A massive tree was knocked down on Callis Road in Sasser. The resident of the home in front of that fallen tree says this just reminds her to always take heed to severe weather warnings.

"When they say tornado, I take shelter immediately. It's no joke. You got to do what you got to do. When they say take shelter that is what you do. As soon as they said it was coming over, it came directly over us. As soon as they said it was over Sasser. It was over Sasser," said Shenita James.

A tree completely blocked Jones Mills road. Another corrections crew was sent out to clear that road. Those same winds also blew a part of this metal roof off a nearby home.
