Albany -- A cold front pushed powerful storms through south Georgia Wednesday night. Daylight Thursday reveals a bumper crop of pine straw, limbs, and leaves on Albany streets, and reports of at least two trees toppled.
Thunderstorms lit up the sky and drenched the ground, but thankfully, damage was minimal.Heavy rain fell throughout much of our region, more than two inches in some places. Most of the area was under a tornado watch.
The National weather service even posted a couple of tornado warnings in Georgia's western most counties early this afternoon.
The big storm hit Terrell County around 5:30 Wednesday evening. Drivers rode with their hazard lights on, slower than the speed limit.
Winds up to 30 miles an hour were powerful enough to knock a street sign down at the intersection of Lee Street and Highway 520 in Dawson.
The storm moved east and in Northwest Albany police say rainy weather conditions contributed to a rear-end accident at the North Westover Boulevard and Old Dawson Road intersection. It happened around seven tonight and the driver of this Red Acura was charged with following too close.
The rainwater saturated Albany's Eugemar Park, that's common during heavy rains. People trying to drive through the intersection of Eugemar Drive and West Second Avenue had to take a detour, the crossroads was impassable.
And if it weren't hard enough out on Hardup Road in Dougherty County, traffic was blocked when a tree fell over the road. Police redirected drivers. It was a minor inconvenience, but thankfully the problems didn't get much worse than this.
