Colquitt County - Marble-sized hail fell as storms swept through east Colquitt County Thursday evening.

West of that area, a tree crashed down on this mobile home on Bennett Road south of Moultrie. Nobody was injured.

Farther west, a big oak tree blocked Georgia Highway 202 near Lower Meigs Road. While crews cleaned up this mess another nearby tree fell on a moving van.

Corporal Randy Stephens, says, "Seventeen-year-old and a nine-year-old, sisters, drove right into the path of the falling tree. They were lucky, somebody was looking after them."

The storm lasted only about 15-minutes, but it was powerful with strong winds and frequent lighting.

Emergency crews were so busy, neighbors pitched in to remove debris from the road.
