Colquitt County -- A strong thunderstorm caused damage in Colquitt County this morning around 9:00.

The force was strong enough to flip a mobile home. Emergency crews said no one was home when the storm hit, and there are no injuries.

A woman who lives on Ellenton-Omega Road heard loud wind and rain, which she described as a "train-like sound." She walked outside, saw that the wind had knocked down her neighbor's mobile home. Imelda Ramirez' home was smashed to bits by the wind burst.

Ramirez was at work at Sanderson Farms when the storm hit, and received the news in a phone call. When she arrived on the scene, she was overwhelmed, and collapsed on the ground.

Through a translator, Ms. Ramirez said, "I fell to the ground and started crying because this is all I have. It was hard."

A bicycle and potted plants siting next to the mobile home were unmoved by the high winds.

There are no other reports of damage, but we have a crew enroute to investigate, and WALB will have more on the storm later.
