Albany - A line of strong to severe thunderstorms downed trees and power lines, slowing drivers and leaving a mess across parts of Southwest Georgia Sunday night. Only two Southwest Georgia counties were under a severe thunderstorm watch Sunday, but strong winds and rains hit other parts of the area.

Around 7:30PM, strong winds knocked a tree onto Martindale Road near the Dougherty/Lee County line. Work crews cleaned up the mess and many others like it.

There were reports of downed power lines, tree limbs falling into streets and onto a house, and a knocked down utility pole in east Dougherty County. Winds gust reached up to 50 miles per hours, and some places received one to two inches of rain.

Decatur and Grady Counties were under a severe thunderstorm watch which expired around 8:00PM Sunday night.
