Thomasville holds on for dear life

September 6, 2004

Thomasville-- GEMA predicted some of the most damaging winds to hit our area would be coming Monday.

They were certainly right about bad weather heard lots of sirens this afternoon, people need to stay inside their homes, and if they don't feel safe there, they should go to a shelter.

Vaughn Irby and his wife were on vacation this week. When they came back yesterday afternoon, they found their neighbors cleaning their yard and covering their roof, where a tree had crashed through.

"It's pretty severe on the front of the house, knocked down the entire wall and took out a window and so we got everything covered to keep the rain from coming in right now."

Unfortunately there are many more homes in Thomasville with trees through and on the roofs more than 70 roads have been closed due to downed trees and power lines. That's why emergency workers don't want anyone on the roads, besides the obvious dangers of not being able to see where you're going in this weather, trees and power lines could come crashing down at any moment.

Awnings on building across the street trash cans catching leaks coming into the building when businesses do in fact open back up The Thomas County Sheriff's Department and Thomasville police department have both issued a curfew starting at 10 PM tonight until 6 AM tomorrow morning. You should stay inside unless you're on your way to work or have an emergency.
