Storm damage wide spread in Worth County

February 14, 2007

Sylvester-  The damage done by Tuesday's storm was fairly widespread across Worth County. The County's Emergency Management Agency received calls for damages from west of Sylvester to Poulan.

Wednesday, the County's EMA, the Department of Transportation and City and County Public Works crews were out assessing the county's damages.

"Down power lines, downed trees, blown a lot of rooftops, tin off the roofs and all we believe it's straight line winds," said Jason Brooks, Worth County EMA Deputy Director.

Since most of the damage done was on private property, the County EMA said it would be up to individual homeowners to remove the debris.
