Lee County-  The first storm damage done in Lee County Saturday night wasn't discovered until late Sunday. 

On Sasser Road, near the Terrell County line, a vacant mobile home was lifted off it's foundation and thrown 50 feet. So was a silo. At this site, Lee County's Deputy EMA Director Captain James Howell says they believe there is evidence of rotation or a tornado. 

"Everything there at that scene, with the trees and the debris indicates a rotational type storm , rotational damage," said Captain James Howell, Lee Co. Deputy EMA Director. 

Howell said pictures taken along Highway 32 and Armena Road sent to the national weather center show only straight line wind damage or a micro burst.
