Worth County- Storms ripped through Southern Worth County Saturday night. Dozens of trees were uprooted in Bridgeboro, one of the hardest hit areas in Worth County.

Strong winds even overturned an irrigation sprinkler. Several trees fell in yards on Evergreen and Douthit Roads, but luckily none of trees landed on the houses.

"It came through between nine and ten o'clock. We really just heard wind blowing and hail hitting the window. It didn't sound really that bad. It was big hail and there was a good bit of it. We didn't know those trees were down until this morning, and we got up and they were everywhere," says Earl Beanblossom.

The storm left dozens of homes without power for about three hours. Mitchell EMC workers spent Sunday morning repairing nearly 30 lines around the county. No storm related injuries have been reported.
