High winds leave damage behind

July 7, 2004

Dougherty County- A quick storm blew through Dougherty County Wednesday night and left a mess.

Heavy winds knocked out power on Sylvester Road.

At Victor Tabernacle Assembly of God, a tree fell and there was damage to the ceiling inside the church. Church employees weren't sure how that happened.

"Vibrating or shifting of the building after a hard draft of wind," said church grounds manager Arthur Taylor. "That's the only thing I can figure. The ceiling tile's not wet, not heavy, no heavier than usual."

There were also reports of hail in east Dougherty County and a possible small tornado in Coffee County. No one was hurt in Dougherty County, but a truck driver suffered minor injuries in that possible twister.
