South Georgia-- Clean-up from Tropical Storm Frances is well underway, but far from over in south Georgia. Power outages, downed trees, and other destruction are keeping work crews busy.
An enormous tree off Tulip Road in Sumter County came crashing down Tuesday, taking with it multiple power lines. "Water got to it and saturated and it just fell down," said Homeowner Charlie Thomas. "We heard a crunch sound and the tree came down, me and my roommate jumped up and there it was with the power lines down."
The Thomas family's home is just a few yards away, they've been without power since the weekend.
Farther east, DOT workers continue to clear fallen trees off the right-of-way on Highway 32. Not far from there, in Arabi, more signs of Frances. "Too much wind, when I left it was blowing too much from the right side of the store going this way to the left side," said Rajesh Yagnik of the Arabi Food Mart.
A portion of the Food Mart's roof blew off in the 50-mile-per-hour winds Monday night. Workers have been cleaning up the mess ever since. "Like 8 to 10 hours yesterday."
The cleanup after Frances is costing more than man hours. Early damage estimates in Crisp County stand at more than a quarter million dollars.
In seven counties in the northern part of our viewing area, including Sumter, Schley and Lee, about 200 customers are still without power.
Crews from as far away as Alabama are helping restore power to people there.
