Sylvester-- After more than two-months of repairs to the Worth County Jail, its thirty-four inmates have returned. The inmates were housed at the Tift County Jail from December 5th until Wednesday afternoon.

It took two months to repair the jail damaged when a tornado ripped through downtown Sylvester. Sheriff Freddie Tompkins says the jail and downtown area are finally back to normal.

"It just takes a little time, but were ninety to ninety-five percent back to normal" said Worth County Sheriff Freddie Tompkins.

Repairs to the jail's communications tower are also finished. The tornado's winds knocked over that tower
