Storms barely hit Grady County

February 16, 2003

Grady County- Trees were snapped and debris was blown across Ridge Road. There were no injuries but deputies says about eight homes lost power.

Only two homes suffered damage, one was vacant and the other belonged to K. D. Palmer and his wife.

"It tore the patio covers off and a bunch of shingles and barn tops. It blew down a bunch of trees; basically made a big mess. It will take a little while to clean up. Other than that, everything's fine. We were really blessed; it could have been a lot worse," says Palmer

The Palmers did have insurance on their property and say they will be able to repair the damage. A 75 year old tree fell in the their backyard, but did not cause any damage to the house.
