Irwin County- Authorities say most of the damage caused by Wednesday's tornadoes was confined to barns and farm structures near the Ben Hill-Irwin County line.

High winds ripped away the workshop that once housed Steve Register's farm equipment. The storms also toppled over dozens of trees just missing his mother's house and destroyed utility shed.

"We're lucky. All this can be replaced, but we couldn't. It could have been a lot worse. The houses came out a lot better than everything else around did," says Register.

Though the tornadoes caused major structural damage, authorities say no storm related injuries have been reported.
