Strong winds damage homes

March 06, 2004

Dougherty County -- Wind gusts knocked down trees and power lines in Radium Springs. Barbara Chambers was walking to her car when a strong gust of wind nearly knocked her to the ground and then this massive pine tree smashed into her car and she narrowly escaped.

"It blow me down a little on the cement and I got out of the way and I didn't bother to close the door of my car then the tree came up from the roots and went across the front of the car,"says Chambers.

Some homeowners in Chamber's neighborhood say they saw a funnel cloud around ten this morning, but there has been no confirmation only straight line winds.
