Americus-  Storms rolled through Sumter County just before 10:30 Tuesday morning. Rain quickly filled drainage ditches along Highway 19 in Americus.

Sheriff Pete Smith says, drivers along Highway 19 need to be careful in the construction zone, especially when it rains.

"You've got a lot of mud and water and debris that's being drawn out into the road and stuff and we're just urging people to slow down and be careful," said Sumter County Sheriff Pete Smith.

The storm blew through Sumter County so fast, it only knocked down several tree limbs which didn't pose much of a problem.
