Worth County-- Two people were killed in Worth County by this morning's storm. They lived off Highway 133 near Bridgeboro, in a double-wide trailer.

One witness confirmed that it was a funnel cloud that narrowly passed his home, and then hit that of Edna and Steve Causey.

The tornado obliterated the Causey's mobile home, killing the mother and son. All that's left of the Causey's home is the set of steps that led to the mobile home, and the concrete pad upon which it sat.

Their belongings are strewn as far as the eye can see. "When you lose your mother, there's not a lot you can say," said James Causey. Causey's 72-year-old mother, Edna, and his 50 year-old brother, Steve were killed.

A photo of the two was one of the items the surviving family members were able to fish out of a pond.

Three residents of a nearby home were injured, and taken to Phoebe-Worth Medical Center in Sylvester. Two have been released. One of was a 12-year-old boy, another was an infant, and their mother.

Linemen from Mitchell EMC are now restoring electricity to the area. There was also damage in the Evergreen area, where some houses lost their roofs, and there were some minor injuries.
