Lowndes County -Tropical storm Frances is causing significant storm damage in Lowndes County.

More than 4,000 homes are still without power. The storm uprooted many trees and the stop lights at several intersections aren't working.

Public works crews have been on the road since about 3:00 Sunday afternoon.

"We've had about 35-40 trees down, but no roads are impassable at this point," said County Manager Joe Pritchard.

So far, the storm has dumped about 3 and a half inches of rain on Lowndes County and brought wind gusts of about 50 miles per hour.
