CALHOUN COUNTY, GA (WALB) – Damaging storms high winds and heavy rain to South Georgia.

Wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour brought down trees, power lines.

In Calhoun County winds blew down farm buildings on Deer Run Plantation on Old Milford Road, just outside Leary.

The roof of a kennel was lifted off and huge limbs landed on the roof of a house on the property.

Hundreds of Pine and Pecan trees fell over or were snapped in half, and a storage shed was destroyed.

The woman who heard the storm pass was too shaken to go on camera, but managers say they're thankful no one was hurt.

"No injuries, we're really lucky, one truck was riding across the road when it was coming buy, and it took his windshield wiper off and pushed him off the road but he's ok," said Mack Kimbrel, Plantation Manager.

The horses on the property were so frightened one ran off. The repairs are estimated at upwards of $300,000.
