Sumter County - - Heavy winds damaged a Sumter County home Friday afternoon.

It hit the Luster's home between Americus and Leslie around 4 PM.

Cornelius Luster says he was inside with his aunt when he noticed the storm. His family was just pulling into the driveway when winds destroyed the front porch and knocked items from their home into the woods.  

"I started out the door, I made it far as the doorway there. I stood in the doorway. I saw chairs flying across the porch and I ducked back and I thought I heard glass cracking. So I ran and layed on the bedroom floor there," Luster say.

Fortunately no one was injured, though the storm scared Luster's 46 year old Aunt so bad she had to be taken to a nearby hospital.

The family can still live in the home, but they have some major repairs to do.
