Dougherty County-- A tornado was reported off of Moultrie Road earlier this morning, which was closed - due to downed trees and debris.

The road has now been reopened. Also, more than 2,000 people are reported to be without power in Southwest Georgia.

 While homes on Moultrie road received a direct hit from the Twister this morning, residents on the street right behind it consider themselves lucky.

The Scaff family lives on Spring Flats Road, they say with the exception of a few trees down in yards, the twister spared their neighbor from any major damage.

“Luckly the trees didn't hit the house, didn't hit the vehicle so we consider ourselves lucky in that respect,” said Helen Scaff, who witnessed the tornado.

Power was out for most of the homes on Spring Flat and Moultrie Roads.

Crews are currently working to restore power.
