Sumter County-  Sunday night's bad weather brought back memories of a year ago for people in Sumter County.

Strong winds knocked down trees and power lines across the northern portion of Sumter County. In anticipation of the bad weather EMA Director and Sheriff Pete Smith had crews on standby.

"We had called out additional folks and several of our guys had called us on the radio and said they were available is need be and we had to use some inmate labor last night to get some trees removed off old Andersonville Road get them cut up and moved," said Sumter County Sheriff and EMA Director Pete Smith.

Crews were able to have the roads cleared before motorists were out this morning. By mid-morning power had been restored to those who lost it.
