Early County- All over South Georgia Monday night, thick, heavy air was an ominous indicator of the approach of Tropical Storm Bill.
Without warning, tornadoes began forming just after seven o'clock . Four of them touched down in Early County.
On Freeman Road, near Highway 62 outside of Blakley, a huge tree was uprooted and crushed a mobile home owned by Lavon Miskiman. His truck and motorcycle were crushed, too. Luckily he and his family got out alive.
Across the street, there was wind damage to the roof of the Early County Head Start building. The wind ripped the shingles off and left debris all over the school grounds.
Next door,the home of Guy Jones was split in half by a huge tree that fell on it. In all, four twisters touched down in Early County.
As Tropical Storm Bill works its way north, another five inches of rain is expected to fall over Georgia by this evening. Bill already had dumped more than four inches of rain over northwest Georgia early this morning.
All of metro Atlanta was under a flash flood watch today. The weather was blamed for one death in metro Atlanta. A visiting Georgia Tech professor was killed instantly yesterday evening when a tree branch broke off and crushed his car in a Buckhead neighborhood.
Heavy rains also resulted in several wrecks in the metro area. No serious injuries were reported, and all lanes were reopened before the morning rush hour.
